Island of Lost Souls

From 1932 comes this pre-code (meaning it’s somewhat racier than the typical fare of the period, but innocuous by today’s standards) strange & weird film Island of Lost Souls featuring a hammy Charles Laughton in the role of Dr. Moreau, a “mad” scientist who conducts horrible, painful experiments on animals, turning them into human like beasts.  His masterpiece is the Panther Woman (featured in the lobby card below).  Needless to say, shit goes bad, and it doesn’t end well for Dr. Moreau.  Atmospheric cinematography by the great Karl Struss.
