Hops and Box Office Flops: The Altogether Strange Journey through the Making of the Island of Dr. Moreau
In our premiere episode, I tackle the legendary disaster The Island of Dr. Moreau. What exactly went wrong with this film? In short: everything. Yet that succinct explanation is not enough to truly convey the nightmare many experienced on the set of this film. There are too many stories that need to heard to be believed. So not only do I cover the film itself, but also the documentary which chronicles this monumental failure — Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau.
Sit back, grab a frosty adult beverage, and enjoy! The truth of all the on-set drama is indeed stranger than the fiction.
