THIS FIRST FILM VERSION OF H.G. WELLS ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU STARS CHARLES LAUGHTON AS DR.MOREAU, A DEDICATED BUT SADLY MISGUIDED SCIENTIST WHO RULES THE ROOST ON A REMOTE ISLAND. SHIPWRECKED SAILOR EDWARD PARKER RICHARD ARLEN FINDS HIMSELF ON MOREAUS ISLAND, AGREEING TO STICK AROUND UNTIL ANOTHER BOAT CAN COME ALONG AND TAKE HIM HOME. BUT THATS NOT QUITE WHAT MOREAU HAS IN MIND: HED RATHER PARKER STAY ON THE ISLAND AND MARRY THE EXOTIC LOTA (KATHLEEN BURKE), WHO CURIOUSLY POSSESSES THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PANTHER. IN FACT, ALL THE ISLANDS NATIVES SEEM MORE ANIMAL THAN HUMAN, ESPECIALLY THE HIRSUTE BELA LUGOSI. AND WHY NOT? THEY ARE ANIMALS WHOVE BEEN TRANSFORMED BY MOREAU INTO HUMANLIKE CREATURES VIA SURGERY. MOREAUS PLANS TO MATE PARKER AND LOTA ARE COMPLICATED BY THE ARRIVAL OF PARKERS FIANCEE LEILA HYAMS, WHO HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO THE ISLAND BY SHIPS CAPTAIN STANLEY FIELDS, ONE OF MOREAUS FLUNKIES. WHEN MOREAU KILLS FIELDS FOR THIS INSUBORDINATION, HE MAKES THE MISTAKE OF BREAKING ONE OF THE RULES HE HIMSELF HAS IMPOSED ON THE ISLAND: THAT NO CREATURE SHALL KILL ANOTHER. ISLAND OF LOST SOULS DOES ITS JOB OF INDUCING GOOSEBUMPS SO WELL THAT ONE CAN FORGIVE THE CHERUBIC EXCESSES OF CHARLES LAUGHTON IN HIS PORTRAYAL OF DR. MOREAU. THE FILM WOULD BE REMADE UNDER WELLS ORIGINAL TITLE IN 1978, WITH BURT LANCASTER IN THE LAUGHTON ROLE.
