Lost Soul

Lost Soul

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.

Totally compelling and entertaining documentary. Honestly one of the most memorable docs about filmmaking I've seen. (I'm not sure why Shudder calls Richard Stanley an "Australian filmmaker" in the description of this movie--he's from South Africa. Maybe the hat threw them off.)

Saw this originally in a screening at the now closed Silent Movie Theater in Los Angeles. Great doc to watch with an audience or on your own. Fascinating behind the scenes exposure.

Never hire a paranoid-schizophrenic to direct your $35 million film.
