Schloss Frankenstein is haunted by a Monster. Through countless movies and one immortal book, he has stalked its halls and hidden passages. And the Hero has always arisen to protect the Maiden from the Monster’s misdirected love.
But Darkness can hide Heros and Monsters can walk in the Light.
And sometimes not even the Maiden can tell them apart.
Written by Thomas E Fuller; produced by David Benedict; soundscaped by David Benedict; directed by William Alan Ritch. Music by The Ghosts Project.
Moreau, misunderstood and hounded by the London medical community, retreats to a Pacific island to continue his experiments. The goal: Nothing less than to surgically rebuild animals into the shape of men — and to teach them the meaning of humanity.
What is the law? Not to eat flesh or fish, that is the law; are we not men? What is the law? Not to chase other men, that is the law; are we not men?
As castaway Edward Prendick learns, Moreau is a feared, wrathful “god” to his beastmen. And in comparing Moreau to his lumbering, gentle servant M’Ling, it is sometimes difficult to tell which is the man, and which is the beast.
Wells’ classic shocker raises the question of what it means to be human. “Pain… is such a little thing…”
Herbert George Wells is perhaps best known for his groundbreaking science fiction (The Time Machine) and social commentary (The Shape of Things to Come), but his place in horror fiction is assured by the novella The Island of Doctor Moreau. Edward Prendick is adrift on a weathered lifeboat when he is rescued, reluctantly, by Dr Moreau. Moreau is returning to his remote island laboratory with a shipload of animals, source material for his greatest challenge; surgically rebuilding animals into human form. To Prendick’s astonishment and horror, Moreau is well along in his work, and the beast-men are already displaying intelligence and language skills. “Are we not men?” reads the beast-men’s catechism, and the answer is not obvious.

Delapore. A name with a history. A history of unspeakable atrocity; a history of black arts; a history of hatred, and terror. Delapore. It’s just a name, now. In this case, it is the name of a man returning to England to reclaim the lands of his family. The name of a man who knows the skeletons in his family’s closet — or so he thinks. Delapore. Surely it is possible to outlive the past. Surely it is possible to outrun one’s ancestors, to outrun history — to outrun fate. Surely a man’s destiny lies in his own hands, and not in the misdeeds of men a hundred generations dead. Beware, England. The last Delapore has come home.
In H. P. Lovecraft’s classic horror story, an old man consents to a radio interview in which a number of terrible truths come out…
The truth about an expedition to Antarctica in the 1920s where everyone died horribly. The truth about a desolate plateau in the heart of a frozen continent. The truth about life and intelligence on the planet Earth.
And the truth about the prehistoric horror that waits lurking… at the Mountains of Madness.
