'Island of Dr. Moreau' doc sets Blu-ray release date
Rejoice, fans of films about films in which Marlon Brando wears an ice bucket for a hat. It was announced today that David Gregory‘s documentary Lost Soul—which tracks the extremely troubled production of 1996’s The Island of Dr. Moreau—will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 14.
The doc’s bonus features include over an hour of outtakes, as well as featurettes, interviews with actress Barbara Steele and the late director John Frankenheimer, and a concept-art gallery with commentary from Richard Stanley, the filmmaker who was fired from Moreau after just a few days of shooting. But wait, there’s more!
Lost Soul will also be available in a three-disc “House of Pain” edition that, in addition to the Lost Soul Blu-ray disc, boasts a DVD of the 1921 silent version of H.G. Wells’ story, The Island of the Lost, and a CD audiobook of the original novel read by Stanley himself.
