Now That's a Disaster!

Have you ever gone to a movie, or even when it was in production, found out there was a problem with it. Now, it doesn't have to be as serious as the deaths in The Twilight Zone http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twilight_Zone:_The_Movie#Helicopter_accident or even as silly as using bits of an unfinished movie using a dead actor and claiming it as his last movie as in Plan Nine From Outer Space http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plan_9_from_Outer_Space#History_and_development. It can even be something like I heard on the radio at the time of the movie's release, that hurricane Katrina pretty much chased the cast and crew of Failure to Launch out of New Orleans. So, have you ever seen a movie like that? It doesn't have to be a Hollywood production after all... Tell all, my friends, I've just told you the 3 I know about.

To be honest, Elic, I can't recall any movie I've seen to have problems with it. I read your discussion and then went and processed the corn for the freezer while thinking hard about it only to come back with nothing.

Did you ever see Attack of the Killer Tomatoes? There's a scene where a helicopter is attacked by tomato vines... that was actually an accident but because it turned out ok, they decided to use it in the film. Hey, for a low budget film, that was a great special effect! And in Wiseguy, Vinny gets hit by a car and breaks a leg... that really happened, and the cast he was hobbling around in was real.

I think I saw the Tomato that Ate Cleveland but not the Killer Tomatoes... Now, Richard Dean Anderson was doing a stunt in that last MacGyver episode and broke his collar bone, so he really had his arm in a sling too. And the episode where he was having to sit after getting his leg caught in a bear trap, I think he hurt himself playing hockey or something....

I didn't know that bit of trivia from "Plan 9" but I always enjoy watching that horrible movie each time it's on. I just love bad movies, especially the old ones that were so sincere in their efforts to be good but were just bad, bad, BAD!!!

Plan 9 was never supposed to be good, the guy who did them didn't intend for them to be "good" just to make money filling a nitch that was neglected back then - horror

I used to love horror movies but they became blood and gore, not horror. Maybe it's me but horror movies aren't horror and scary books aren't scary anymore, humor isn't funny anymore but just gross and rude.

well, I never cared for "physical" comedy, where people laughed at the poor clod for falling down - and most comedy seems to be based on pain (emotions or physical) and so I don't care for it - now, there can be good comedy where people aren't getting hurt or embarrassed, but its hard to find horror tho, without the blood and gore is just hard to find. Poltergeist managed to do it, scared me a LOT and I was an adult and saw it on TV!

I would still see a moive reguards of its peoduction history if it is something worth seeing. what proplems plaged the stuido won't affect how I decied. I have seen two of the movies you talled about and I am sure I have seen others that have had problems in the production but other than the first and second movie you mention I can't think of any off hand.
