Scrapped Horror Movie Ideas That Were Deemed Too Brutal To Film
The Meg
While "The Meg" performed well enough to merit a sequel, some viewers were disappointed that the film was toned down for a PG-13 rating to appeal to a broader audience.
Unfortunately, director Jon Turteltaub told Bloody Disgusting that audiences will never have a chance the original, gorier R-rated cut of the movie.
Ridley Scott's "Alien" is a masterpiece that spawned a still-ongoing film franchise, but this might not have been the case if he used his original idea for the ending.
Rather than defeating the Xenomorph at the end of the movie, Ripley would have lost the fight, with the alien impaling her space helmet and ripping her head off.
Dawn of the Dead
George A. Romero's iconic "Dawn of the Dead" ended with Peter and Fran successfully escaping the mall by helicopter. However, his original idea was much darker.
Outlined by Little White Lies, Romero's original ending saw Peter dying by suicide off-screen. Fran, now without hope, then thrusts her head into the helicopter's spinning blades.
