LOST SOUL:
THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY'S THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU

WED 5 NOV, 8:30pm


SA HORRORFEST

This mind-blowing documentary goes behind the scenes of the infamous 1996 remake of The Island of Dr. Moreau, 
South African-born writer-director Richard Stanley's first big studio movie (and labour of love).  But it was destroyed by a clash of vision,
vain stars, studio interference, bad creative decisions, lack of interest and really bad weather, plaguing the disastrous production almost from the start.
(We had the privilege to host Richard at our Celludroid film festival a few years back, and convinced him to do a live commentary to the
screening of Dr. Moreau, from which he was removed and replaced by John Frankenheimer).
