The Island of Dr. Moreau Movie Summary

Edward Douglas is a U.N. negotiator in 2010. His plane crashes in the Java Sea, but he is rescued. Montgomery, one of his rescuers, tends to Douglas’ injuries. They promise to take Douglas to Timor, but end up taking him to Moreau’s Island.

A jeep takes them to the island’s Main House, and they warn Douglas not to wander too far. Douglas sits tight, but soon meets Moreau’s daughter named Aissa. Montgomery sends Douglas to his room, and locks him in, but Douglas escapes.

When the natives spot him witnessing a mutant baby’s birth, he flees…right into the arms of Aissa. She takes him to a village of mutants where he meets the Sayer of the Law. There, Dr. Moreau appears. We learn he controls the mutants with a remote control that causes them pain when he wants via implants under their skin. Moreau uses this remote to force the mutants to hand over Douglas.
