ISLAND OF LOST SOULS (1932)
An obsessed scientist conducts profane experiments in evolution, eventually establishing himself as the self-styled demigod to a race of mutated, half-human abominations.
A respected surgeon disfigures his beautiful model wife in an accident and resolves to restore her beauty. He develops a technique which involves the use of fluid from the pituitary gland and embarks on a killing spree to obtain more of the fluid. As events spin more and more out of control, carnage ensues and the dead bodies start piling up…
Plus look out for some superb horror giveaways and prizes.
The Classic Horror Campaign was set up to persuade the BBC to bring back their iconic Saturday night classic horror double bills which were so popular in the 1970′s and early 1980′s. The campaign has grown from an online petition and now includes this website, a Facebook Page, Twitter account and a regular series of classic horror double bill screenings around the UK.
