Blast From The Past: Batman Dead End

April 27, 2008

Remember this?

This fan-produced film did the rounds ages ago. In fact it was back in 2003 (5 years ago!) when I first heard about it – from this thread at TTLG forums, as it happens.

And, you know what? It’s still as gloriously campy and fun as it was back in the day, as well as being a shining example of what insane fanboys with a budget can actually produce when they put their minds to it… Batman vs. Alien vs. Predator – no one expected that! Talk about a mashup

Just imagine how the audience would react if Christopher Nolan pulled that kind of stunt in his upcoming The Dark Knight. Although it would of course be unforgivable (and would no doubt result in a sustained hate campaign from legions of die-hard fans), it would almost be worth it simply because of the supreme “WTF!?!” factor and stratospheric levels of internet kudos which such a move would generate.

    A) that’s totally illegal to sell it.
    B) FWIW, I have a book coming out in September about the history of fan films, and Sandy Collora’s Batman: Dead End gets nearly an entire chapter to itself. If you want to find out the full story of the film—and it’s surprising aftermath—you’ll want to check it out. The book’s called “Homemade Hollywood.”
