The Strange Creatures that Cronenberg's Total Recall Would Have Included

Last week, we brought you some exclusive concept art from David Cronenberg's unmade version of Total Recall. And now artist Ron Miller has dug up another amazing trove of unused Cronenberg Recall art — including a photo of makeup tests for Kuato.

And this time around, there's a look at the Ganzi Bulls, weird creatures that would have been in the Cronenberg film but weren't in the Verhoeven version. Plus the strangest form of transport on Mars, that we never got to see.

Writes Miller:

These drawings show a lot of ideas that were in the original Cronenberg version of the script but which never made into the Verhoeven/Schwartzenegger film. For instance, the ganzi-bulls: monsters that lived in the sewers beneath the Mars city, Chryse Planitia. They were for the most part the disposal system for unwanted bodies. And one of the main modes of transport on Mars would have been sandsubs that burrowed their way under the deserts. A lot of attention was also paid to the design of the transport spacecraft, the Martian city, the hotel and the sphinx.
