Movie: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)

Written by the great Robert Louis Stevenson, the 1886 novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a sparse but chilling account of a man's darkest inner impulses manifesting themselves in a scary-looking, disheveled, but still human alter-ego, best portrayed in 1931's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

In the universally panned The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (based on, and immensely inferior to, Alan Moore's 15-issue graphic novel series), director Stephen Norrington and screenwriter James Dale Robinson gave Jekyll and Hyde an exaggerated makeover, abandoning all human attributes and changing Hyde into the Incredible Hulk's long lost, English, slightly handicapped brother.
