At long last, one of the holy grails of classic horror will be readily available on DVD: Island of Lost Souls! This classic retelling of The Island of Dr. Moreau features Charles Laughton as the mad doctor and has Bela Lugosi as one of the monsters.
Yes, it doesn’t actually come out until October 25th (barely in time for Halloween), but after waiting years for this, what’s a couple more months? It’s also a Criterion Collection version, so it should be good quality, and it features commentary and other extras.
Cool news for a hot Tuesday afternoon!
