There are the movies that make it to the theaters, the movies that go straight to DVD, and then there are the movies that bypass all of that and go directly into your worst nightmares. Here are all the worst movies that you never did see, coming to a theater near you never.

In response to the call, asking for the dead movie projects you're grateful never made it out of development, there were plenty of contenders. Here's just a few of the almost-movies that will be keeping us up later tonight:
It's A Wonderful Life 2: Live Wonderfuller — justvisiting
Mountains of Madness — "Lovecraftian horror relies heavily on suspense and not showing things," says Egofreaky, "rather letting the audience fill their own minds with the worst possible case.
Superman Lives — the movie, starring Nic Cage, was almost a thing, ConwayCostigan reminds us.
A comedic version of Green Lantern — matthewsimpso, on the never made Jack Black vehicle
Akira — genetix, on the live action version that never made it to the screen.
