Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau
The shocking true story of a visionary director fighting the universe to create his work.
In 1995, visionary writer/director Richard Stanley (HARDWARE; DUST DEVIL) got the green light for his dream project: An epic adaptation of H.G. Wells’ The Island Of Doctor Moreau starring Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer. But only days into production, an unprecedented storm of natural disasters, monstrous egos and disturbing imagery – along with chaos, insanity and witchcraft – would trigger perhaps the most infamous behind-the-scenes catastrophe in modern movie history.
Now. director/producer David Gregory (THE THEATRE BIZARRE; PLAGUE TOWN) reveals the untold story behind “one of the all-time greatest cinematic train wrecks” (Variety) in this “wonderfully weird and gripping” (Entertainment Weekly) documentary.
