Unseen Prequels

Text settings

There are times when Twitter is a bit like playing I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue. Today, for instance, folk have been frittering the afternoon away thinking of Unseen Prequels that have mysteriously disappeared from cinema history. Some of my favourites:

All About Adam, Gremlin, Build the Bismarck!, Duck Stock, Le Depart de Martin Guerre, Snakes at a Metal Detector, The Undergraduate, Ferry Across the River Kwai, Blackhawk Aloft, Eyes Up Wolves from the Bar, Subject Kane and, my favourite of favourites, Lambo.

Thanks to Mr Eugenides and Overnight to Many Distant Cities for many of these. Readers are invited to submit their own candidates for a Festival of Unmade Prequels...

As always, my Twitter feed is here.
