Did You Know?


This movie was made to be a theatrical release. Underlying reason was they wanted to keep their rights, if they had the movie in production by certain date they would extend the rights. When all the cast came together at the Mall of America with posters and advertisements for the movie launch. Director Roger Corman sold the movie out from under them. And left them standing at the premiere with no film. See more »


Following the Fantastic Four's escape from Dr. Doom's captivity, they arrive back in the city. Even though no time at all has passed since them, they now apparently have their own building with a "Number Four" logo on the side and an aerial transport vehicle. They did not have time to put their logo on the building or build/acquire the vehicle. See more »

Finally Seen It
26 March 2006 | by tkdartonSee all my reviews

Ah yes, the original unreleased Fantastic Four feature length film. I have recently seen this film and having read about the story and happenings behind it I couldn't help but feel impressed with what the filmmakers were able to do with such a small budget. I know it wasn't that great, but with what these poor fellows had to work with, I believe they did quite an amazing job. I'm just happy I was finally able to see such a film rarity and what they were able to do. The acting wasn't the greatest, the computer effects were, well, pretty rough but the writing wasn't too bad and, maybe its just me, but i was impressed with the things suit. I thought it looked good. Foam, rubber, I have no idea but it looked pretty nifty. Also with the new version having been released one wonders, what one is indeed the superior film?
