Movie Info

In this fairly interesting variant on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde from Britain's Amicus Studios, Christopher Lee stars as Marlowe, a stuffy doctor who develops a formula to release inhibitions. When he takes it, Marlowe turns into the evil and repulsive Mr. Blake. The twist is that Blake gets uglier with each successive dose until he becomes a pitiful, ape-like monster. Peter Cushing co-stars as Marlowe's lawyer friend, and a young Chloe Franks appears with Mike Raven and Kenneth J. Warren. Despite the low budget, director Stephen Weeks manages to present a realistic depiction of Victorian England, and Lee turns in a memorable performance. The film started shooting in 3-D, but the idea was discarded during production. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

Audience Reviews for I, Monster

[4.5] As much as I love Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, they're only as good as the material they have to work with. This is a poorly staged retelling of 'Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde' that suffers from slow-pacing and a lack of memorable scenes. This is actually what I've come to expect from Britain's Amicus film productions -- they are ever the poor man's Hammer Studios.
