Sneak Peek

A new movie poster has been released for the upcoming documentary, Doomed: The Untold Story Of Roger Corman's The Fantastic Four.

The film will shed new light on the mysterious circumstances surrounding the legendary cult classic and "lost" Roger Corman film.

In 1994, Roger Corman was tapped to produce this Marvel superhero story on a very small film budget. The film was ultimately shelved prior to distribution, but a VHS copy was mysteriously leaked and the movie became a darling of film bootleggers and, more recently, web pirates.  Rumors and speculation surrounding the production have become as much a part of the lore of the film as the film itself.

This year marks the 21th anniversary of Roger Corman's edition of The Fantastic Four and finally, all of the secrets, stories and legal shenanigans that have kept this a ‘lost’ film will be revealed through in-depth, investigative interviews with the cast and crew.

The feature length documentary was directed by east coast Film Studies professor and independent filmmaker, Marty Langford and executive produced by LA-based casting director, Mark Sikes.  Sikes was the casting assistant on the 1994 Concorde-New Horizons / Neue Constantine co-production, and was on site at Corman’s studio, offices and locations during the 28 day production.

Premieres and screenings announcements are coming soon.
