I have already blogged about this movie, but here are a few more clips. This first one is of the ending…stay with it until Reed Richards waves goodbye. It’s priceless.
Here’s the Human Torch doing his thing. I have no idea why he and the doctor can’t appear in the same shot.
In 1994, a Fantastic Four movie was shot with the intention of never releasing it. The studio owned the rights to make a movie based on the foursome, but those rights would expire if a movie was not made by a certain date. B-movie king Roger Corman produced the movie believing, along with the entire cast and crew, that the film would be released. The studio kept everyone in the dark about their true plans to shelve it. According to Wikipedia:
The producers could have rushed this film into production, hoping that the makers of a big budget version would not want a cheaper version of the same story to be available immediately before their expensive blockbuster. If that was the case, the strategy worked, as the film was bought for many times the cost of the option and production, and theater audiences never saw the finished production.
