FrightFest Review: Lost Soul – The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau

26 August 2014 6:57 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau is a tale of madness. Not madness attributed to one particular person (although you could point a few fingers to an individual or two, in this case). It's about the madness of film production, how things can spiral out of control and easily discard a director's singular vision in the process. Here, David Gregory - of Severin Films - hasn't necessarily crafted an uplifting piece of work like, say, this year's Jodorowsky's Dune, another "doomed project" doc but one that embraces the spirit of creativity and drive in the face of failure. Rather, Gregory tells a deeply fascinating and frustrating story from the Hollywood trenches that you occasionally can't help but laugh and shake your head.

Featuring: Richard Stanley, Fairuza Balk, Marco Hofschneider, Robert Shaye, Graham Humphreys | Directed by David Gregory

We’ve heard all the insane rumours and scandals attached to the ill-fated 1996 remake of H.G. WellsThe Island of Dr. Moreau. How director Richard Stanley spent four years developing the project only to be fired after four days of shooting and replaced by John Frankenheimer and how headliner Marlon Brando impacted on that decision…

Helmed by Severin’s David Gregory, Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau is an intriguing look at the intricacies and fragility of film-making in Hollywood – the battle between creativity, money and power. For the first time the cast and crew recount what really happened on the set of the film and why it all went so spectacularly wrong.

The filming of the ill-fated 1996 version of H. G. Welles’ The Island of Dr. Moreau is the stuff of legend.

Poster for 'Island of Dr. Moreau' doc 'Lost Soul' is manimal crackers

21 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

One of the oddest tales this writer has ever reported on involves 1996’s box-office bomb The Island of Dr. Moreau, the third big-screen adaptation of H.G. Wells’ novel about a scientist who tries to turn animals into people. The movie was a passion project of director Richard Stanley who had made a splash with his debut movie, the sci-fi action film Hardware, and who assembled a remarkable cast for his Moreau, which included Val Kilmer, Marlon Brando, David Thewlis, Fairuza Balk, and Ron Perlman. After just a few days of principal photography, he was fired from the film and ultimately »

Exclusive Poster Debut: Lost Soul – The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau!

20 August 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

When I learned David Gregory (Theatre Bizarre, Godfathers of Mondo) had embarked on a documentary that explored Richard Stanley's time developing the '90s version of The Island of Dr. Moreau, it instantly skyrocketed to the top of my must-see list. Growing up, I remember reading within the pages of Fangoria about the turmoil Stanley went through. And, as a wannabe filmmaker at the time, I looked at Stanley as this champion - someone fighting the good fight against the studio system to see his film come to fruition. I'm glad to see his story is now being told.

This afternoon, Shock is bringing you the exclusive first look at the poster for Gregory's Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau. That wonderful art you see below is by genre legend Graham Humphreys.

The Facebook page for Severin Films posted the below photo today. Accompanying the gruesome and bizarre image it reads: "Severin Films original documentary Lost Soul coming soon." Filmmaker Richard Stanley (Hardware, Dust Devil) commented beneath the photo shortly after it was posted. He said: Welcome to the 'house of pain'. You're looking at the miracle of birth, the moment of creation itself - courtesy of Dr Moreau's ground breaking work on unraveling the secrets of the human genome...

30 May 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

In order to wrap up my Twitch coverage of Fantaspoa 2014, I'm sharing the festival's official video recap, which is a very nice way to get a taste of what happens "behind the scenes" and when you bring together Lloyd Kaufman, Richard Stanley, Simon Boswell, Bruce Labruce, and the Toxic Avenger! Amazing things happen, for sure. The video was shot and edited by Emiliano Romero, director of Topos, and it also features footage of Kaufman's Make Your Own Damn Movie Masterclass, some of the Q&A sessions, the great hosts and directors of Fantaspoa (Joao Fleck and Nicolas Tonsho) in action, and a brief narration by Stanley himself.

Fright Exclusive Interview with Torture Chamber Director Dante Tomaselli!

21 May 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

*Editor’s note: Icons’ own Justin R. Lafleur was awesome enough to not only conduct this interview, but to do it with a filmmaker that holds a special place with Icons of Fright. Dante Tomaselli was one of the very first interviews conducted for Icons, back in an interview that Rob G. did in 2004..a full decade ago. What better way to celebrate a “Decade of Fright”, than by catching up with someone whose career has grown, just as Icons has grown. We’re all very stoked on this one, and we hope you readers are as well!-Jerry

Rejoice film freaks! Visionary director Dante Tomaselli is back with what can arguably be called his best film yet, the recently released Torture Chamber! All his trademark obsessions are on display (the inversion of religious iconography, Catholic mysticism, demonic forces hovering at the edges of the everyday and children who may »

Interview: I Am Dune - Frank Pavich on Jodorowsky's Unmade Masterpiece

27 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Jodorowsky's Dune -- a film that was supposed to have starred the likes of Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, Sting, Dali, and David Carradine, with a soundtrack by Pink Floyd, art by H.R. Giger, storyboards by Moebius, effects by Dan O'Bannon, and directed by psychedelic cult auteur Alejandro Jodorowsky -- never got made. But is it any surprise? With all of these heavyweight egos involved, it's not terribly difficult to see that if the smallest thing went wrong -- if one person didn't approve of the script, costume, co-star, etc., or if one was offended by the slightest provocation -- that it could all fall apart. Which it did. However, director Frank Pavich took all that might have been and crafted a hilarious (hear Richard Stanley...

‘Jodorowsky’s Dune’ is essential viewing for any true cinephile

19 March 2014 4:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jodorowsky’s Dune

Directed by Frank Pavich

USA, 2013

Alejandro Jodorowsky, Michel Seydoux, Frank Herbert, Chris Foss, H.R. Giger, Moebius, Magma, Pink Floyd, Dan O’Bannon, David Carradine, Mick Jagger, Amanda Lear, Orson Welles, and Salvador Dali. Yes, that’s quite an array of figures, isn’t it? Frank Pavich’s historically illuminating and expertly constructed documentary on one of the greatest films never made, Jodorowsky’s Dune, screened at the Toronto International Film Festival today. It’s no mean feat to win over a gaggle of cynical jaded hacks but that’s exactly what was achieved with this post-mortem on the omnipresent lack of originality among Hollywood executives, a impenetrable wall of financiers who crushed the dreams of one the industry’s most idiosyncratically original postwar shamans. After a whistle-stop tour of Jodorowsky’s phantasmagorical curriculum vitae—he’s a Mexican surrealist provocateur par excellence, the twisted psycho-nautical genius behind »
