Island of Lost Souls

This week on Svengoolie "Island of Lost Souls".

Based on H.G.Well's novella, "The Island of Dr. Moreau", this movie holds up very nicely. Granted the specials effects and even the horror aspect are a bit tame by today's standards, it is and always will be a classic.

I thought that Charles Laughton pulled off the best Dr. Moreau while some of the other performances were not what I would call stellar *ahem* Richard Arlen. Of course, Bela Lugosi is Bela Lugosi and I'm not sure that his accent did anything for the movie. That being said, he's freaking Bela Lugosi!!! You have got to have him in a classic horror movie.

Saturday night, Svengoolie, Metv, enjoy ...
