The Island of Dr. Moreau

Drably version of H.G. Wells' novel. A man is tricked into coming to a strange island where odd DNA tests are being done on animals to make them more human-like. These animals begin to revolt causing considerable damage. Sinker of a movie that wastes Marlon Brando, Val Kilmer and the expensive costumes. The story is turned into an incredibly creepy horror tale that is incredibly tedious to watch. See the 1933 version, Island of the Lost Souls instead.
