All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau (2014)



Starring: Richard Stanley, Robert Shaye, Fairuza Balk, Rob Morrow, Marco Hofschneider, Edward R, Pressman,
Director: David Gregory


Premise:
A behind the scenes story of the infamous Island of Dr Moreau remake told by the original creator Richard Stanely, the producers, and the actors.

My Take:
There are several fascinating points to take away from the documentary. The first is how a studio still makes a movie despite not being 100% behind the making of it, which causes problems from the beginning. The second is how the director/writer's vision gets changed drastically throughout the process due to unforeseen circumstances. And the third is how much influence, egomaniac movies stars actually have on a film production which leads to astronomical amount of money loss. A great watch for anyone interested in behind the scene Hollywood film making.

Rating: So Good

Watched: Netflix Instant
