Richard Stanley had a dream of making a screen adaptation of the H.G. Wells classic The Island of Dr. Moreau. In the mid nineties, he finally managed to get the project up and running, but its shooting turned into a battle between art and industry interests that ended with the director being fired from the film. This documentary examines the story of a movie that could have been a masterpiece of fantasy that ended in an epic failure.
Co-founder of the Blue Underground distribution company, he’s produced and directed dozens of documentaries on genre cinema. He debuted in fiction feature length with Plague Town (08), and promoted and co-directed the group film The Theatre Bizarre (11).
