Stack up all the mad scientists who have ever conducted abominable experiments in a secret laboratory -- from Victor Frankenstein up through Dr. Evil -- and all of them together are not half as brilliant, deranged and flat-out horrifying as Dr. Moreau.

Set to original music and charged with riveting dialogue, this highly physical tale creates a horrifying world you will long remember. Learn More
