The 1977 sci-fi thriller sails to Blu-ray in 2015.
In an early announcement to retailers, Kino is set to release 'The Island of Dr. Moreau' on Blu-ray later this year.
Animals become monsters - and a man becomes part animal - in this sci-fi shocker starring Burt Lancaster and a galaxy of mutant monsters created by some of the make-up legends behind Planet of the Apes. On a tropical Pacific island, the mad Dr. Moreau (Lancaster) has set out to fool Mother Nature, conducting nightmarish genetic experiments that have resulted in Lionmen, Tigermen, Bearmen and other marauding monstrosities. But when a storm at sea washes shipwreck survivor Braddock (Michael York) ashore, the sinister surgeon devises a diabolical plan to dispose of his meddling and uninvited guest. Partially transformed into one of Moreau's monstrosities, Braddock must escape from this tropical hell before the mad surgeon can finish the job... of bringing out the best in him!
No other details have been released at this time.
