That’s right! Jaleel White, best known for his role as Urkel in “Family Matters” has been cast as one of the leads in the upcoming release Mega Shark 2: Mega Shark Vs. Crocosoraus. Look for Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus on DVD shelves on December 21st.
ESPN 710 Radio’s Steve Mason loves(?) Mega Shark. So much so that he tried to get an audition for Mega Shark 2: Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus which is now in production. He didn’t get the call at first, but attentive listeners with connections are sometimes better than an agent in Hollywood.
Listen to Steve tell it in this excerpt from his Mason & Ireland radio show on ESPN 710:
In September 2010, The Asylum will be a guest at the Incubate Festival in Tilburg. The American company has become notorious in recent years for making their so-called mockbusters, cheap pirated versions of major Hollywood films.
These mockbusters are immediately released on DVD, even before the original movies screen in cinemas. Besides a large number of claims and lawsuits, the studio also enjoys a large fan base.
The Asylum’s way of working fits perfectly with the central theme of this year’s Incubate; piracy in the arts. Besides various readings and discussions on the subject, Incubate has also compiled a very diverse film program around this theme under the title ‘Pirate Cinema‘.
During the festival week visitors can enjoy the pirated counterparts of The Da Vinci Code, Snakes on a Plane, Transformers and Alien vs. Predator among others. One of the highlights is the European movie premiere of Titanic II. The film premieres in the U.S. on August 24 and will be featured in a cinema in Europe for the first time during the Incubate festival on Thursday, September 16.
All screenings take place in the Filmfoyer Tilburg and are free. Check out the whole Pirate Cinema program at www.incubate.org/2010/event/19
Here are some clips from an interview with one of The Asylum’s Executive Producers, David Rimawi:
“Seriously I thought it was a spoof when i saw it at the rental store”
“it was hilarious in the stupidest way, Don’t BUY JUST RENT“
“This movie is way more fun than the movie that it obviously rips off”

Shortly after we released PARANORMAL ENTITY last year, we were contacted by a now-retired official with an Illinois law enforcement agency (we have agreed not to disclose the name of this source or the organization for which this person worked) who informed us of crime scene footage that has never been revealed to the public.
In 2006 a team of paranormal researchers investigated the house which was built on the site of the location where many of infamous serial killer John Wayne Gacy, Jr.’s victims were buried.
8213: GACY HOUSE contains the footage that was found with several of the bodies of the researchers.
Images and a short segement of the footage can be seen here.
Barring any legal injunction, 8213: GACY HOUSE will be released on DVD on September 28, 2010.
Warning: These crime scene images are disturbing and graphic.
