Adam Roffman and Luke Poling
In this atmospheric documentary, Spearhunter, an offbeat cast of characters reflect on the life of Eugene C. Morris, a hunter known for his distinctive tactics and outsized personality. “The truth about Jean Morris is that he was a serial animal killer,” says Heather Jean Morris, Eugene’s ex-wife. The Spear Hunting Museum, a collection of Eugene’s taxidermies, is located in Summerdale, Alabama, and is open to the public.
The filmmakers behind Spearhunter are currently directing a feature documentary with David O. Russell about the book publishing industry. You can learn more about the film on its website, Facebook, and Twitter.
