Avengers Grimm (2015)


Oh Asylum, you’ve grown so much over the years. It’s a shame that Sharknado has been your claim to fame, but whatever it takes to keep things rolling. For the few who don’t know much about Asylum, they are a company that churns out movies commonly dubbed as Mockbusters at an insane rate for dirt…

Vermilion Pleasure Night (2002)


Vermilion Pleasure Night is a Japanese comedy variety show that primarily focuses on parodying popular Japanese shows and American sitcoms. You could probably get away with likening it to an episode of Tim and Eric, except for the fact that the episodes are longer, which can be a plus and a minus. Tim and Eric,…

The Adventures of Mark Twain (1985)


Will Vinton, who many of you might remember for the California Raisins, is kind of a god to Claymation. He is right up there with Art Clokey (Gumby), Henry Selick (Coraline) and Nick Park (Wallace & Gromit). And just like all the other greats, there is always this distinctly Vinton look to all the things…

Murdercycle (1999)


In the quest to watch and/or own anything related to Full Moon Productions, I found a 4-pack of DVD’s which had the much needed Killer Eye, two monster movies that could very will be for children, and then this: Murdercycle. Aside from being an awesome name, it seems to fit that 80’s sci-fi/action hybrid perfectly….

Creating Rem Lezar (1989)


I apologize in advance for the quality of these screenshots. It wasn’t easy finding a decent copy of this movie. It has proven quite difficult for me to really, seriously, hate or even get angry about the existence of a movie like Creating Rem Lezar. The terrible acting, cornball dialog, horrendous musical numbers, laughable special…

Monster (2008)


Monster is another attempt by The Asylum to cash in on a much better motion picture; in this case Cloverfield. One would have you believe that The Asylum’s offering is the horrifying, “real” account of two American filmmakers struggling to survive the rampage of an enormous beast. What you actually get is 85 minutes of…

I Am Omega (2007)


I Am Omega is a “mockbuster” title put out by The Asylum that met its release shortly before I Am Legend, which starred Will Smith. Much like the film it imitates, I Am Omega tells the tale of one man”s struggle for survival after a viral outbreak transforms most of the world”s population into mindless…

Princess of Mars (2009)


If you’ve never seen a film produced by The Asylum, then I envy you for being happier than me. They are a sinister cabal of marginally talented people known for preying upon the unwary. Let me ask any of the Gen Z’s out there who may be reading this: have you ever asked your grandparents…

Blood and Bone (2009)


A common criticism of action movies is that the plot often lacks in lieu of fight scenes. But to me that’s like saying a cake has too much frosting and lacks a plate so you have to eat it with your hands. Which to a normal person makes sense, but to me it sounds perfect….

Angel of Death (2009)


Been a while since I watched a pure action movie, and even this was a trick. I figured it was some sort of horror, but that was mot meant to be. Of course it didn’t stop me from watching it. I knew the lead female looked familiar, and then I realized it was the girl…
