It Ate Cleveland is an unrealized spoof of Japanese monster movies.


Ohioans are in danger from a ravenous monster breeding in the contaminated waters of Lake Erie.


It Ate Cleveland was a project originally conceived as a spoof of Japanese kaiju films, with a treatment written by Dana Olsen, featuring a monster resembling Godzilla breeding in Lake Erie.

According to the poster, the film would have been directed by Gene Quintano, written by Dana Olsen, and produced by a group of companies known as The Cannon Group, Inc. A lawsuit threatened by Toho prompted the cancellation of the film after it was retitled Godzilla vs. Cleveland.[1][2] The film was put on hold until 1987, when it was given its original title, but the film was never made despite two attempts.[1]
