I, Monster is a 1971 adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson novella "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde." In this version, Dr. Charles Marlowe (Christopher Lee) is a Freudian psychiatrist experimenting with a drug to tap into a person's subconscious. After experimenting on several of his patients, Marlowe injects himself with the drug. The effect is to turn himself into a brutal, uninhibited man referred to as Mr. Blake. As Blake, Marlowe rents a seedy flat, begins frequenting local prostitutes and beats people who cross him with his walking stick. Marlowe loves the freedom of being so uninhibited and becomes addicted to the transformation. Meanwhile, his friend and colleague, Frederick Utterson (Peter Cushing), sees Blake use a check written in Marlowe's handwriting to pay off the father of a girl he trampled. This leads Utterson to think the Mr. Blake is blackmailing Dr. Marlowe. Little does he know that they are both the same man. Except for the name changes, this is a faithful adaptation of Stevenson's 1886 story, directed by Stephen Weeks.moreless
