: One of the most horrific depictions of the human potential for evil ever written. In Stevenson's famous supernatural story of good versus evil, meet the well-intentioned, wealthy physician Dr. Jekyll. As he drinks the potion that is the culmination of his research, he unleashes the dark side of his nature, turning into the hideous Mr. Hyde. At first fascinated by the potential for human transformation that his discovery has wrought, Dr. Jekyll becomes increasingly alarmed as he realizes that Hyde is out of control. Hyde roams the streets of London, increasingly maniacal-and homicidal. Dr. Jekyll tries-with increasing desperation-to stop taking the drug, but its addictive power has him fully in its grasp. Stevenson graphically portrays how a good man and a brilliant scientist is slowly but inevitably overwhelmed by the powers unleashed by his own morbid experiments.
