Before I Go To Sleep
Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong star in director Rowan Joffe's (Brighton Rock) psychological thriller.
Based on H. G. Wells's The Island of Dr Moreau, this may lack the overt thrills the genre demanded at the time, but its constant menace and Laughton's performance make this a genuinely unsettling film. Laughton is the scientist who has populated an island with the results of his experiments to transform the genetic structure of animals. He plans to mate a man with a woman he has created - one who is slowly turning back into a panther. Moreau's descent into madness makes for uncomfortable viewing.
This is a horror milestone, and, despite several attempts, a better adaptation of Wells's book has yet to be made.
Shooting has started in Cincinnati on The Killing of a Sacred Deer,¿ which reunites Colin Farrell with director/producer Yorgos Lanthimos, following the critical and commercial success of The Lobster.
