The story of Johnny Thunder’s Great Escapade is a sad one. It was the first real project for Benighted Films. Unfortunately due to a hard drive failure the majority of the project was lost. A few of the stills and rushes (video clips in stop motion films) have been found. A couple of years ago we started planning a remake of Great Escapade. We only filmed two scenes and then the project was abandoned. So it’s about time to finish it. Benighted Films’ next project is slated to be the remake of Great Escapade. It will use parts of the original, the first remake and then some new scenes will be filmed. Most of the expanded story is planned out already. The final project will be a silent film.
Johnny Thunder gets a call from his friend Doctor Killroy who tells him of a discovery in Mexico. He flies to Mexico and then they go off to uncover ancient treasure with a few mishaps on the way.
