By almost all accounts, Fantastic Four is a bad movie. Some even go so far as to delightfully call it an "unmitigated garbage fire".

However, it was not the first horrible Fantastic Four movie to be made, some would even say it was the fourth horrible Fantastic Four movie made.

But if you want to go back to the beginning, back to the franchise's first brush with rotten, you'll need to watch the 1994 B-movie magnate Roger Corman's disaster.

That cult classic, that is truly so bad it's great, was never even released. It was merely produced by the German rights holder because the rights would be lost they were not used.

Years later, it leaked out to the public so the world could have its original awful Fantastic Four movie.

And, you lucky person, it's now streaming on the Internet!

It probably won't be for long, though. With FOX now owning the rights, they may not be too keen for this display of the brand. So watch it while you can!

If you're looking something slightly better, we did put together a list of 10 movies that rate higher than the most recent Fantastic Four movie.

Anyway, here's the 1994 movie:

How was your weekend? Good? Great!

But it was so good that you probably fell behind on the important stuff that happened in the world. And you probably fell way behind on all the weird, nonsensical stuff that happened.

Don't worry! We're here to bring you at least the latter!

Movie advertising can be super annoying.

It can also involve lighting a drone on fire and flying it around.

While we're still not sure what we think about the new reboot of the not-done-well-yet Fantastic Four movie, we are sure what we think about flying fire drones.

They are rad.

The extremely cautious safety crew for this video pulls out a man shaped, highly flammable cut out attached to flying drones then zooms it around the dark night sky, looking like Johnny Storm on his way to the Baxter Building or to fight Galactus or whatever.

We're totally fine with this type of movie promotion because a.) It shows us something IRL we've never seen before and b.) It's probably better than the movie.

The worse thing about this video is how bored those operators look while flying a flaming drone:

At least they got into the spirit a little bit:

If this sold you on the new movie, or if you wanted to see it anyway, Fantastic Four opens Aug. 7.

Step aside Cara Delevingne and take your bad interview with you. We've not a new contender for atrocious press junket of the summer.

Atlanta's Rock 100.5 Morning Show radio host Steven J. Rickman and interviewer Jason Bailey either aren't really into interviewing or are way too into making their guests uncomfortable. In this video, they spend most of the time asking some cringe-worthy questions of Kate Mara, who will play Sue Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, and Michael B. Jordan, who will play Johnny Storm.

The two shock jocks launch into questions about race — always a good ice breaker for summer blockbuster actors. They could not understand how Mara and Jordan were to play siblings since one is black and the other is white.

Then, they laid into Mara about why she cut her hair short, because she it was so attractive before.This is a class move, which women appreciate. That was sarcasm.

Luckily, Rickman found a way to smooth the whole thing over by saying he's a "toe-man" and that Mara has great feet.

Enjoy your morning trainwreck!

And if you're curious, we've got the Fantastic Four trailer for you over at Geek Universe.
