Directed by David Gregory
The bizarre true story behind the reviled 1996 adaptation of the H.G. Wells classic is told for the first time in this equally hilarious and horrific documentary. After making his mark with the visionary horror films HARDWARE and DUST DEVIL, Australian filmmaker Richard Stanley came up with an ambitious plan for adapting THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU. But casting pretentious performers like Val Kilmer and Marlon Brando proved to be his undoing and he was fired off the film. What happens after that must be seen to be believed. Fans of JODOROWSKY'S DUNE will love it. Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.

Um...........wow an actual look at the interesting real people in the film industry. Really good focused documentary.
fascinating documentary. Well worth the watch
A very humane look at a director without a chance.
One of the greatest, funniest, weirdest/bizarre documentaries I've ever seen to such a strange film adaptation that I've been obsessed for quite a while and the mystery behind the movie being so bad but so good in a way is quite a sight to witness with this gathering the information needed. From the immortal words of Mark Twain: "Truth is stranger than fiction."
