With sky-high budgets and competing egos, almost any film production has the potential for disaster. But some become full-fledged nightmares. Take "Pulgasari" - a North Korean Godzilla clone dreamed up by Kim Jong II and created by a kidnapped South Korean director, with a budget of millions and a staff of seven hundred fed on truckloads of pheasants, wild geese, and deer. The stories behind the other eight films, from "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" and "The Twilight Zone: The Movie", to "Waterworld and The Crow", are just as astounding and as gripping. This is a book film fans will devour. These bizarre, often hilarious cinematic endeavours confirm that truth is stranger than fiction, reality more volatile than narratives, and fate more improbable than plots.
