Coffee With Jeff #107: Richard Stanley & Dr. Moreau

31 mins - Published Sun, Oct 2, 2016 by Jeff Kelley

As the age of 4 or 5 he read and fell in love with the H.G. Wells 1896 book The Island of Dr. Moreau, the story of a doctor who creates sentient beings from animals by the way of vivisection. Richard Stanley was disappointed in the previous two film adaptions of the work and dreamed that one day he would be able to make the film right.

In 1996, he got his chance to make a big budget film Doctor Moreau. It didn’t go well!
