A shipwreck survivor washes ashore on a paradise Island. Welcomed as a honored guest by the Islands governor Dr Moreau, he soon finds out that not everything is as it seems. Based on the novel by H.G. Wells.
A very clever and enjoyable film. The scenery was superb, Burt Lancaster and Michael York outdo themselves as the Dr and the shipwrecked survivor.
The film can be a bit cheesy and the makeup and effects may seem a bit dated now.
