Film Night: The Island of Lost Souls (1932)

6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Banned for decades and condemned as a vulgarisation of H. G. Wells’s novel The Island of Dr Moreau: Island of Lost Souls is a delirious delight, a cautionary tale of undisciplined science.

A fiendish, whip-cracking doctor is conducting ghastly experiments, transforming beasts into subservient human brutes on a remote island in the South Seas. This touchstone of film terror features a superb performance from Charles Laughton, atmospheric photography and the perverted eroticism of attempting to mate a human with a beautiful woman created from a panther.

The film will be preceded by an introduction by Gareth Miles.

Cost: £10
