A lot of movies and first draft scripts have working titles like the ones you mentioned…..some of the working Titles could have been good but others are just hilariously bad.
Most studios realize some of the corny titles won’t bring in the money so they come up with a better and more profitable Title for the film.

Alien was Star Beast

Texas Chain saw Massacre was Head cheese and possibly Leatherface

Evil Dead was The Book of the Dead

Hell raiser was Sadomasochists from Beyond the Grave and almost Hellbound

And even though these next two aren’t horror movies they have two of the most interesting working titles…
Blade Runner was Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep
Lol I can see why this was changed……Blade runner is so iconic of a title.
Breakfast club was Lunch Bunch
Lol…. Definitely not as catchy….
I can definitely see how some of these Names definitely needed a tweaking.

Lunch Bunch would have made a cool sequel to The Breakfast Club.
