Committing Yourself

Oct 26, 2009 in Headline, News, Other

Every week I get dozens of emails from people asking how they can work on/act in an Asylum production.

All I can say is be careful what you wish for. The hours are long, the pay is meager, and do you really want to associate yourself with… us?

Oh, alright…

First, move to Los Angeles. There aren’t enough people here and the freeways are practically vacant.

Next, if you’re interested in working a crew position send an email and your resume here.

If you want to act, we usually post our casting notices here. Headshots are expensive, so don’t send them unless you know we’re specifically casting something… or you are super hot.

Finally, don’t give up.  If you don’t hear from us the first time, try again. If you’re really determined to ruin your career I’m sure we will eventually let you…

Mega Thanks!

Oct 13, 2009 in Headline, News, Other

We just received word on the ratings for MEGAFAULT on Saturday and we’re excited to announce that over two and a half million people tuned in for the premiere (1.1 million in the target demographic)!

Thanks to everyone for your support!


Megafault is Explosive!

Oct 10, 2009 in Headline, News, Releases

Okay, this is the last time I will beg you to watch MEGAFAULT (…until the DVD release in November).

The Original film premieres on Syfy tomorrow night, October 10, at 9 pm EST/8 pm CST (check your local listings… for some people on the West Coast it’s on at 6 pm…).

The film was shot in Iowa and the local media are all talking about it:

The Hawkeyes want you to watch MEGAFAULT (instead of some silly football game that might be on at the same time).


Sherlock in the News

Oct 09, 2009 in News, Releases

Production has wrapped on SHERLOCK HOLMES and most of the crew are back in LA after doing their part to support the economy of our former monarch, as reported by the local newspapers:

From the North Wales Chronicle: http://www.northwaleschronicle.co.uk/news/79862/caernarfon-stands-in-for-victorian-london-in-new-sherlock-holmes-film.aspx

And the Daily Post: http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/2009/10/01/caernarfon-transformed-to-victorian-london-for-new-sherlock-holmes-film-55578-24824031/

Hey, are those Victorian headphones on the guy in the background?


Sex For Sale! (Haunting Too)

Oct 07, 2009 in Other

Sure, the majors make 3D movies all the time. But how often do you see such cutting edge technology from a fourth rate B movie studio?

We’re so proud of our two recent titles that for a limited time we’ve dropped the price on the 3D versions of SEX POT and HAUNTING OF WINCHESTER HOUSE to just $14.99 (plus shipping and handling).

You can buy them both at the Asylum Store here.

Nudity and ghosts in 3D!  What are you waiting for?


Megafault Airs This Saturday

Oct 05, 2009 in Other

Our first Original production for Syfy, MEGAFAULT, airs this Saturday, October 10, 2009 at 9 pm (EST).

Contrary to reports on a couple of websites out there, this is not a mockbuster of 2012 (it was Emmerich that ripped us off). This is a completely original production (well… as original as a giant earthquake movie can be…).

So, if you really want us to stop making mockbusters, tell all your friends (and enemies) to tune in to Syfy this Saturday. We need a good rating to keep making bigger movies. And this is our biggest yet: Brittany Murphy, Eriq La Salle, Oscar nominee Bruce Davison, infamous porn director David Michael Latt and 400 visual effects!

Besides, I’m sure you can come up with a drinking game to make it less painful… or you can just drink. 

That’s what we do…


From the Set: Sherlock Holmes

Oct 03, 2009 in Headline, News, Releases

Last year we filmed MERLIN AND THE WAR OF THE DRAGONS in Wales and the locals had such a good time on the production that they asked us to come back “…and bring more money next time.”

Well, we honored one of those requests…

Principal photography is about to wrap on SHERLOCK HOLMES and the crew has just sent us the first batch of stills from the set.

SHERLOCK HOLMES stars Dominic Keating (pictured) from ENTERPRISE  with Gareth David-Lloyd (TORCHWOOD) and introducing Welsh local Ben Syder as the famous consulting detective.

You can see more pictures here.
