The documentary flick will hit Blu-ray in July. You can pre-order the disc now.
In an early announcement to retailers, Severin Films is preparing 'Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau' for Blu-ray on July 14.
In 1995, visionary writer/director Richard Stanley (HARDWARE, DUST DEVIL) got the green light for his dream project: An epic adaptation of H.G. Wells The Island Of Doctor Moreau starring Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer. But only days into production, an unprecedented storm of natural disasters, monstrous egos and disturbing imagery along with chaos, insanity and witchcraft would trigger perhaps the most infamous behind-the-scenes catastrophe in modern movie history. Now director/producer David Gregory (THE THEATRE BIZARRE, PLAGUE TOWN) reveals the untold story behind one of the all-time greatest cinematic train wrecks (Variety) in this wonderfully weird and gripping (Entertainment Weekly) documentary featuring never-before-seen footage, startling new interviews with actors Fairuza Balk and Rob Morrow, studio executives, crew members and for the first time ever the notoriously reclusive Stanley himself, plus nearly 2 hours of exclusive Bonus Features.
Specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include: Out-takes (sub-menu: Richard Stanley, Marco Hofschneider, Bruce Fuller, Jim Sbardellati, Graham Humphreys and others; Archive Moreau Interview With John Frankenheimer; Barbara Steele Recalls Moreau Audio Interview; The Beast Of Morbido Featurette; Return To The Moreau Locations Featurette; Boar Man Diary; The H.G. Wells Files Bonus Disc; Insel Der Verschollenen (Island of the Lost) - Recently Discovered 1921 German version of Moreau; Graham Humphreys Concept Gallery With Commentary By Richard Stanley; H.G. Wells On Film Featurette With Expert Sylvia Hardy; Richard Stanley on Wells; BONUS AUDIO CD; and Richard Stanley Reads The Island Of Dr. Moreau By H.G. Wells.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD/CD combo pack is $34.95.
