Doctor Moreau is a scientist who is creating a race of "Beast people" -- creatures carved and shaped out of living animals, made to resemble and behave like human beings. They populate Moreau's secluded island, worshipping Moreau as their Creator God and obeying his Laws. The appearance of another "real" human being causes confusion, fear and suspicion amongst them, and they soon revert to their original animal traits and instincts!
