We’re So Proud

Friday, May 28th, 2010 @ 12:56 pm | Headline, News, Other

The Asylum is pleased to announce that our 2007 hit (yes, it was a hit…) AVH: ALIEN VS HUNTER has been selected as the next screening at Horrible Movie Night, a celebration of cinematic disasters.

The screening will take place:

Saturday, June 5th, 2010
8PM (Doors at 7:15)
The Complex – Flight Theater
6476 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood, Calif 90038

Here is some more information about the organization that is hosting this event.

AVH is NOT the worst movie we’ve ever made, but I believe that it is one of the most transcendent; that is, it is one of those rare films that is so bad that it’s actually good.

So, if you live in Southern California, please come out and see if you agree with me and show your support for bad cinema.

      That’s good news.

    2. Bobby Says:

      I disagree with “Invasion Of The Pod People” being your worst. I think it has some of your best acting, and it’s got great mood and atmosphere, unfortunately, there was an odd sense of pacing and it relied to heavy on the sex.

      “Death Racers” is my vote as your guys’ worst. Not enough racing or deaths, too much ICP.

    3. Daniel J. Roos Says:

      Great, now I have to go get Invasion of the Pod People.

    4. Maarten Says:

      Would like to go, but for all I know there’s no direct train from Rotterdam in the Neterlands to Southern California…

    5. Rick Says:

      I wish the Alamo Drafthouse out here in Virginia had some Asylum screenings. Like ‘Transmorpherthon’ or something like that.

    6. Paul Says:

      Rick, we’re actually in discussions with Alamo Drafthouse about doing some screenings (I wish we had theatres like that in LA… bad movies and beer… what could be better?).

      You should let them know you’d be interested.

      Umm,Amazon critics would KILL to find out which of your films,I DONT LIKE !

    8. Immanuel M Says:

      When will MILF be released?

    9. butt Says:

      Well, You guys are no Uwe Boll. He’s movies are very bad!

    10. K Says:

      I’d honestly ask why Asylum bothers making movies. I know for money, but wouldn’t it be easier and more lucrative to just sell insurance or used cars or something?

    11. Maarten Says:

      But what’s the fun in that?

    12. BlU_sKrEEm Says:

      I hate to disagree with everyone, but I have to say “Universal Soldiers” is the worst of the Asylum flicks. The Ginger in Pod People was pretty amusing, but “Univeral Soldiers” is just a mess (although the ending almost made it worth it.)

    13. William R. Cousert Says:

      So what’s stopping Asylum from creating a “great” movie? Low budget doesn’t always mean low quality.

      Ever heard of the Blair Witch Project? I think their budget was under $20,000, but it went on to make millions.

      Why can’t Asylum follow their example?

    14. Me Says:

      It doesn’t cost anything to write a good script, or to position your camera well, or take multiple takes. You can even do it rapid fire that way. Why does it always look so cheap? “Splinter” was less expensive than your stuff, and just look at it!

    15. K Says:

      Dudes, the Asylum guys KNOW they make shit and they don’t care. That’s what posts like this are about. I mean, they can’t even say they tried to make a good film and failed, they just say the buyers want this, so we make it as quick and lousy as we can to make a buck. No Evil Dead or Blair Witch or Spliter will ever come from them. Shit, they can’t even make an entertaining crap b-movie like Corman used to crank out like clockwork.

    16. William R. Cousert Says:

      >Dudes, the Asylum guys KNOW they make shit and they don’t care.

      Good movies will always make more money than lousy movies. Even they can understand that.

      A little extra effort could pay off.

    17. Forgotten Junk Says:

      I really have to say, I love your guys’ sense of humour, and how you’ve made me want to check out Alien VS Hunter.

    18. Awesome Bill Says:

      All Asylum fans should check my write-up of Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus out here:
      Thanks! Read it, you’ll like!

    19. Danny Boy Says:

      I have to disagree. I’ve always thought that AVH was your worst flick, being incredibly boring with terrible editing during the action scenes. It almost put me off Asylum Films, but 100 Million B.C. won me over.

      You guys have put out some really fun products, though if you listen to suggestion I would like to see more practical effects when it comes to your creature flicks. Is CGI really cheaper than a man in a rubber suit? Just something to mull over…
