I read that the first drafts of The Room and Troll 2 made it seem like they were actually going to be good movies   Wink

Beetlejuice wasn't originally a wacky prankster played my Keaton.  Originally he was going to be a batwinged demon that took the form of a Middle Eastern man.  Also he wasn't going to try to scare the family out of the house and marry Winona Ryder.  He was going to try to rape Ryder and murder the family.

Considering what a convoluted mess of a production it became, that probably would've made more sense.........

In an early draft of Itís a Wonderful Life, George Bailey found (& killed!) an evil version of himself.

If I remember correctly, the original script for DEATH BECOMES HER was much more darker.

The original script for Gremlins was more gruesome, with graphic death scenes (Billy's mom decapitated by gremlin) and what not. Also, in the script Billy was 12 years old, which explains Zach Galligan's friendship with 12 year old Corey Feldman which seemed kind of weird.

watching the commentary track to Luigi Cozzi's PAGANINI HORROR (1989)

started out life as a straightforward bio-pic of Paganini, ended up a supernatural slasher  TeddyR

A very early teaser trailer for Alien 3 indicated that it would be set on Earth.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
