10 Unrealised Films We Wish Had Been Completed!

25 July 2011 2:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

 

(As our editor Matt Holmes turns 25 today, he’s out of office and we are going to re-publish some old favourites.)

With the frustrating news breaking last week that Guillermo Del Toro’s adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness (based on an H.P. Lovecraft story) is ‘dead’, I began thinking about some of the other potentially great projects that audiences were tragically destined to never see. From further research it’s clear that the major directors that have worked within the industry have abandoned vast numbers of productions that would have easily been big money makers and both critical and financial successes. Indeed, filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch and Orson Welles have abandoned dozens of projects, even after beginning production on some of them!

Read on to discover the ten unrealised features that we’d love to have seen completed…

36 Legendary Kills from The Master of Suspense

10 March 2011 1:03 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

More than any other filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock is the quintessential 20th century movie director. He began his career in the days of silent pictures and continued all the way until 1976, with Family Plot.

During his long career, he directed over 40 features and once said that any movie director could surprise his audience by setting off a bomb, but to show the audience a time bomb, ticking away under a desk as two men calmly discuss baseball, is far more elegant and terrifying.

Instead of shocking his audience with splatter and gore, he terrified us with suspense. Audience have always been overwhelmed with the desire to warn the characters of the danger which they perceive, and which the characters are not aware of, especially in his films since, well murder was usually his calling card.
