Trailer, theatrical dates revealed for “MOREAU” documentary “LOST SOUL”


The behind-the-scenes story of 1996’s THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU is more bizarre, shocking—and funny—than even that insane Marlon Brando-starrer itself, and a feature-length chronicle of what went down is coming to theaters from Severin Films; read on for the new trailer and venue lineup.

LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY’S “ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU” was directed by David Gregory and tracks Stanley’s ill-fated involvement in the project, which he launched only to get booted from the film by New Line Cinema early in production. Featuring interviews with Stanley, actors Fairuza Balk, Marco Hofschneider and Rob Morrow, executives and producers Robert Shaye, Edward R. Pressman and Tim Zinnemann, concept artist Graham Humphreys, members of the Stan Winston makeup FX team and many others (including—full disclosure—yours truly), LOST SOUL covers MOREAU’s development, the on-set shenanigans of Brando and Val Kilmer, Stanley’s secret return to the production under a dog-man mask and much more. A hit on the festival circuit and with critics (see our review here), LOST SOUL will play the following screens/dates:
