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.

Very engaging documentary. I have the film on DVD so great way to visit the tortured creative process that led to this flawed master piece. Also go Queensland.
I proudly own a DVD copy of the flawed masterpiece film and as Queenslander this is a great documentary in its own right. Please watch it.
Absolutely a must see documentary
Love Richard Stanley and Fairuza Balk even more now. Must watch!
