Trivia

Second of two back-to-back sci-fi/horror films for actress Barbara Carrera who had appeared in the previous year's Embryo (1976). Both pictures were produced by Sandy Howard and included three of the same make-up department personnel. See more »

Goofs

When Dr Moreau injects Braddock with a body-altering substance, he injects him in the upper chest. This is the incorrect area for an injection. An intravenous inject site is usually in the arm and an intramuscular injection it is usually in the shoulder, thigh or buttocks. See more »

What Is The Law?
23 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

"The Island Of Dr.Moreau" is the remake of the H.G. Well's 1933 Classic "Island Of Lost Souls". Burt Lancaster is great as Dr.Moreau. This is a very well done movie. The make-up of Tom Burman & John Chambers is outstanding. All of the creatures look very realistic. This is a movie that I would love to have on DVD. I never saw the other remake of this. But from what I have heard, it was pretty awful. Classic Lines:

What Is The Law? Not to walk on all fours.

What Is The Law? Not to shed the blood of another man. That is the law.....
