#44 A Fantastic Four film exists that is so terrible it will never reach a screen. In 1992 the production company Constantin Film was in danger of losing the film rights to the Fantastic Four unless it started production on the movie by the end of the year. Lacking the $40 million it needed to make a full-budget film, it turned to low-budget movie supremo Roger Corman for help. He spent just $1.98 million to crank a quickie Fantastic Four movie. Constantin never intended to release the film but it never told the director or the actors this. "Oh, that was a tragic event. I feel so sorry for the people involved," Stan Lee remembered years later. "The director really tried his best, and so did the actors. They all thought that this was their big chance. But the movie was never supposed to be seen. Most people thought, "Jesus, what a terrible job that is! How corny! How cheap!" They didn't realize that it wasn't meant to be any better than that. Unfortunately, the people working on the project didn't know that, and they tried their best. Really, I feel so bad for all of them." Other low-budget Marvel misfires include the 1989 Punisher film starring Dolph Lundgren and the 1990 Captain America film - starring no one you've ever heard of. (Times Online)

I've seen the Punisher movie with Dolph Lundgren when it came out -- I believe it was a direct to video movie, and they must have thought it was insanely bad because this was never dubbed in French, and though I lived in a place where video stores never even carried English versions of movies, they had this one... and we rented it. And... I don't remember liking it. *lol* But I might have, I really can't remember.

I've also seen the Captain America movie -- this year, on TV, on some cable channel, in the middle of the night. It was *beyond* horrible. I watched half of it, gagged three or four times, then turned the TV off.

Haha, I just saw the trailer on youtube for the Punisher movie and it's... interesting. Dolph Lundren with sideburns made me lol a long, long time.

I don't think I could work up the courage to see the Captain America movie though :/
