The Event

This mind-blowing documentary goes behind the scenes of the infamous 1996 remake of The Island of Dr. Moreau, South African-born writer-director Richard Stanley's first big studio movie (and labour of love).  But it was destroyed by a clash of vision, vain stars, studio interference, bad creative decisions, lack of interest and really bad weather, plaguing the disastrous production almost from the start.

(We had the privilege to host Richard at our Celludroid film festival a few years back, and convinced him to do a live commentary to the screening of Dr. Moreau, from which he was removed and replaced by John Frankenheimer). 


For info on the rest of the HORRORFEST (running from 29 October - 7 November), which includes loads of movies and several short film chapters (you're unlikely to see in any SA cinema), live soundtrack performance to a classic silent film, literature, alternative market, Halloween dress-up competition and much more, head to the offical website (listed below)
