Edward Douglas(David Thewlis) narrowly escapes death when his plane crashes in the South Pacific. Adrift for weeks, he is rescued and taken to the mysterious island of Dr Moreau (Marlon Brando). Douglas meets the infamous doctor and his enigmatic assistant, Montgomery (Val Kilmer) but finds that he is a prisoner on the island. Unable to leave or get answers about the experiments Dr Moreau is conducting, Douglas searches for answers on his own.

He discovers the beautiful Aissa and becomes infatuated by her animal sensuality. But as he explores further, Douglas uncovers fantastic and brutal experiments turning animal life into human-like beasts.

Dr Moreau has used the key of science to unlock the gates of hell.

Hard to believe that a director like John Frankenheimer could direct a film as bad as this.

One word SAD

Normally I would try and make the effort in a review to justify my opinion of a film... but to be honest, this film is just so bad that I really can`t be bothered. How can someone who brought us such a fantastic film like Ronin, produce something this bad?

This is a truly awful film and a truly awful disc.

Please, for you own sanity - avoid this at all costs. The only possible excuse for buying this film is in order to burn it for the greater good of mankind.

You have been warned....

Is it the movie that got Marlon Brandon his razzie? Yes it is! I found it very painful to watch. Bad acting, bad plot and bad everything! No no no no!
