Can you ever tame the savage in the beast or in the human? Based on a loose adaptation of H.G. Wells’ novel, The Island of Doctor Moreau, the film details the evil schemes of Dr. Charles Girard, a rogue scientist working on Blood Island, struggling to morph a panther into a human. Sailor William Fitzgerald is shipwrecked on the island and trouble brews when the scientist’s wife falls in love with Fitzgerald. Terror is a Man is the first film in the remastered Blood Island series and its success as a cult classic provided Eddie Romero the revenue to revitalise Filipino cinema.
