If Superman III Was a Horror Film
Remember how terrible SUPERMAN III was? This movie sucked out loud!! Well, the good folks over at One Perfect Shot remember, and they set out to do something about it. As good as SUPERMAN I and II were, SUPERMAN III is just as bad. Comicbook.com summarizes the third film perfectly:
After 1980’s Superman II delighted audiences and critics alike everyone was eagerly-awaiting the next film in the series, but the positive vibe soon wore off once people got a gander of how awful Superman III is. It’s filled with cheap sight-gags and slapstick humor. Margot Kidder’s Lois Lane was demoted to a minor role for speaking out against the producers’ harsh treatment of Richard Donner, the original director of the previous two Superman films. Hackman chose not to return because of how Donner was treated, and he was replaced with a Lex Luthor knockoff: Ross Webster (Robert Vaughn).
That’s not even the worst of it. That honor goes to Superman becoming an lust-crazed alcoholic, who then has his good and evil personalities split into two separate bodies and brawl in a junkyard. A close second would have to be that creepy moment when Vera becomes a cyborg because of Gus’ supercomputer.
If you haven’t seen this movie, it is way worse than the above description. Any who, check out the video below of what SUPERMAN III might look like as a horror film. At least it is now semi-watchable!!
