“Basically a retread of HG Wells’ The Island of Dr Moreau, …It does have some good special effects and excellent make-up… …mistakes include human beings crossed with Apes, Bats, and even a Panther. The Panther is a non-speaking role for Pam Grier which involves her savaging everyone in sight and showing the butt-kicking prowess that was to make her a success in future films.”
