Peculiar, sometimes effective, small-scale version of Island of Dr. Moreau.

A dull-witted horror/sci-fier that is inspired by H.G. Wells' "The Island of Dr. Moreau."

Audience Reviews for Terror Is A Man


Based on The Island of Dr Moreau, a ship-wrecked sailor washes to shore on a island (Blood Island, to be exact) to be rescued by a local scientist. The scientist/surgeon lives on the island with his hot wife (who at one point is obviously playing with herself in bed and later has a camel-toe) and assistant. There is a village present on the island as well, and they have reported missing/murdered people. Apparently, the scientist has created a human from a panther; the panther roams the island jungle killing. The sailor investigates and there is the expected snooping and showdown. For being a 50s Filipino horror film, this wasn't as bad as it could have been (just VERY slow paced).
