Veteran filmmaker Vincenzo Natali has been kicking around Hollywood for a long time, and over the years, he’s been involved with a ton of projects that never made it out of development. Want a peek at what could’ve been?

Natali (Splice, Hannibal) has taken to Twitter in an effort to let fans have a peek at some of the (many) awesome genre projects he has worked on that never escaped development hell. Among the list? Predator, Neuromancer, Stephen King’s It and Swamp Thing. Not a bad resume, though they don’t technically go on the resume, since they never happened. But we digress.

The Neuromancer art is absolutely stunning, and you can see a major Blade Runner vibe running throughout the work. His version of It is also terrifying, and is guaranteed to give you nightmares if you possess any aversion to clowns. His Predator stuff is also impressive, and almost has a more tribal, animalistic vibe to it, when compared to what you typically see for the franchise.

Check out some samples below, and dig into Natali’s Twitter feed for even more:
