This is perhaps the coolest reference about one of our movies I’ve ever seen … yes, even cooler than Sally Forth.

The graphic on the left is the creation of designer Stephen Taubman and it proves scientifically that MEGA SHARK is real and that we are geniuses (yeah… I’m pretty sure that’s what it proves…).

If you need designers, I suggest you hire this guy. We’d do it… but he’s obviously too smart to work for us.

Thanks to our friend Osvaldo for letting us know about this.

 I can’t wait to see the infographic for MEGAPIRANHA

Megapiranha Sighted!

The first images from the set of MEGAPIRANHA are now available here.

MEGAPIRANHA stars ’80′s pop icon Tiffany, Paul “The Terminator” Logan, and Barry Williams (The Brady Bunch).

Don’t let the size of this one worry you… it gets bigger (What did you think I was talking about?).

MEGAPIRANHA will be released on April 27, 2010.

Worst. Movie. Ever.

Jan 12, 2010 in Other

I make it a rule to avoid reading the user comments about our movies on sites like imdb.comAmazon, and YouTube.

This is because I believe that most people who comment on these sites are eleven years old. I also think that the anonymity of the internet allows people to say things they’d never say if they had to use their real names. But mostly I avoid reading them because it’s just too painful.

If you look at the various sites you’ll invariably notice that someone has described every one of our movies as “the worst movie ever made.”

Really? Every single one? The worst? 

Have none of these people seen Crash?

Admin Unmasked

Jan 05, 2010 in News, Other

Happy New Year!

With the coming of 2010, I’ve decided to reveal my secret identity. Admin is Asylum partner Paul Bales (that’s me pictured on the left with my dog, Winnie, who, by the way, is not wearing a costume… she actually is the devil).

I’m letting you know who I am for a couple of reasons:

First, ego. I’m tired of everyone thinking Latt is responsible for all these little bon mots. David can be the spokesmodel for all those fancy magazines and radio shows. This little piece of digital real estate is mine.

Second, I think it’s important to stand behind what you say… especially on the internets. And although I’ve never tried to be anonymous, now there won’t be any question about who is talking smack about INVASION OF THE POD PEOPLE.

Which leads to the final reason for this unmasking: “The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management.” What I write is what I think. It’s not official Asylum policy. Latt and Rimawi would never say the mean things I do about our “movies.”

Now stop reading this and go rent PRINCESS OF MARS (It’s actual footage of that time Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Tracy Lords went to another planet).
