The Fantastic Four (1994)
Oct 30th, 2008 by mike

Screenplay by Craig J. Nevius and Kevin Rock
Directed by Oley Sassone

An internet favorite! Roger Corman produced this low budget adaptation of the popular comic book. Much of it is awful or laughable, but it has a certain naive charm. The rumor is that Corman was actually paid NOT to release it, because another studio was planning a big budget production. Bootlegs of the film can be found online.

Screenplay by Joan O’Brien and Charles Denton
Directed by Jerry Lewis

Clowns and the Holocaust. Who wouldn’t want to see that? Never released due to the bad taste factor, but after Life is Beautiful, could the world be ready to see Jerry Lewis take on the death camps? Read about the movie’s history in an article from Film Threat.

My Best Friend’s Birthday (1987)
Oct 30th, 2008 by mike

Written by Craig Hamann and Quentin Tarantino
Directed by Craig Hamann and Quentin Tarantino

Before Tarantino directed his first movie (Reservoir Dogs), he co-directed ANOTHER first movie, My Best Friend’s Birthday.

Tarantino later considered it amateurish, so he claimed to be a first time director when putting together the production for “Reservoir Dogs.” Although “Birthday” is really no more embarrassing than most student films, QT thought if investors saw it, they’d hire someone else to direct.

About half the film was lost in a lab mishap, but 36 minutes of it survive on the internet today.
