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.

Well done documentary, makes me sad we didnt get to see the vision of how it was originally planned.
Quite an interesting documentary.
Very fun watch! Unbelievable look into how things “work” in the eyes of Hollywood.
Really solid documentary. It kind of fizzles out at the end, but other then that it was great. 7/10
Very entertaining documentary about the disastrous attempt at making a 1990's adaptation of H.G. Wells's The Island of Dr. Moreau.
