LOST SOUL: DVD And Blu-Ray Details For Richard Stanley / MOREAU Doc
As recently reported by Fangoria, the weirdos at Severin Films are releasing film festival favorite Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau on DVD and Blu-ray on July 14. The doc details the mind-boggling, head-scratching antics of what happened both on and off set on the notoriously botched production.
