 I'd seen the 1996 remake of this with Marlon Brando at a drive in once before but never actually viewed the original version til now.  This one blows that newer flick away by far and I thought it was great for a few reasons.  One being Bela Lugosi who doesn't star but has a neat role as the leader of the beast-men and seems to have been an inspiration for the band Devo with his "are we not men?" chanting.  Charles Laughton is also great as Dr. Moreau and this one really fits in well with the other classic Universal monster movies(even though it was technically made by Paramount) since it has a whole island of hairy monster creeps running around.  Also of note is the Panther Woman who's pretty hot for a 30's chick.  I've never seen the 70's interpretation of this but I think it would be hard to top this.
