Synopsis

‘Terror stalked the Brush-Choked Island – Where Men who were Animals Sought the Girl who was All-Human!’ This adaptation of HG Wells’ classic The Island of Doctor Moreau was banned outright when first submitted to the (then) British Board of Film Censors in 1933, a ban with which Wells – who didn’t like the film – ‘let it be known that he was not unhappy’. Subsequently rated ‘X’ with cuts in 1958, it had to wait another 50 years to get a clean bill of health.
