Documentary about Roger Corman Fantastic Four film coming this year

In the cinematic sense, everyone loves watching a train wreck. That’s because there’s something so joyously mean-spirited about watching something fail so spectacularly. It’s quite fascinating to watch a movie and think about which one of Satan’s trickster demons was working to make this thing happen (*cough* NINE LIVES *cough*). Truly, the history behind such spectacular bombs is quite fascinating. But there’s one bomb that many haven't got to watch explode, and its history is about to be unveiled.

The documentary DOOM! THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN’S FANTASTIC FOUR will be released this year, and will go behind the scenes of the mysterious, notorious, unreleased 1994 Fantastic Four movie from the legendary producer of countless, cheap flicks, Roger Corman. The doc put out its first trailer (see below) in 2014, but will finally be released later this year, according to EW.

As for the doc's subject, the film THE FANTASTIC FOUR, has only been seen by people who have been able to snag a bootleg copy, but has otherwise not been released to the general public. Images have poured out on the internet, though, showing off the campy costumes and the nightmare-inducing makeup of The Thing (played by Michael Bailey Smith), leading many to wonder "what the hell is this mess and how can I get it?"

Much like with the documentary THE DEATH OF “SUPERMAN LIVES”: WHAT HAPPENED?, DOOMED! has interviews with many from the cast and production crew of the superhero flick, who all share their experiences and insight into why, out of the countless Corman films, this was the one that was made but never shown to the public. From the sound of the trailer below, it sounds like some shady shit.

DOOMED! THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN'S FANTASTIC FOUR will be released on VOD October 11, and on DVD on December 20.

Check out the trailer below!

I can't wait to see this. But word to the wise as I've seen the movie, its actually the best FF movie when it comes story and with respect to the characters. The Doom is the best and most faithful of all the FF movies. Johnny is the one character that missed the mark in my opinion, they played him as a bit of a wholesome dumb kid not the cocky borderline asshole that he normally is. The special effects were abysmal, Johnny was literally a cartoon as the Human Torch. But the movie as a whole was

It actually got the FF family story and its villain right.

Doomed

This one actually was closest to getting Doom right. The Thing looked pretty good for their budget. Sue was cute. I would almost like to see what Corman can do with a real budget.

People expecting the Corman FF movie to be crap are in for a major surprise. It's actually really good and I'm not even joking. The filmmakers gave a fuck back then and worked around the limited budget and resources.

Thank you for the great news. I had wondered if a person would ever see this documentary beyond the festival circuit. Now, we schlock fans need only await the movie's release one day. Some cable network once broadcast Fantastic Four-1994. I knew that I should have DVRed it. The film looked like a cheesy, but faithful, FF adaptation.

I watched it on Youtube a couple of years ago but the video quality wasn't good. It might still be there.

Releasing a bad Fantastic Four movie just so you don't lose the rights isn't as unique a story as it used to be...
