Director Richard Stanley's 1990 debut Hardware is a cult favourite, but just when he was right on the brink of Hollywood success, Stanley was infamously sacked from The Island of Dr. Moreau, starring Marlon Brando, just one week into shooting. Those events, recounted in 2014 doco Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau, put a dampener on Stanley's career. Colour Out of Space is his first narrative feature since then—and has already been welcomed with the Best Picture horror award at Fantastic Fest 2019.
