Mega Python vs Gatoroid Premiere

Jan 25, 2011 in Headline, News, Other

While Rimawi and I are slaving away at NATPE in Miami (bitch), our own David Michael Latt represented The Asylum at the New York premiere of MEGA PYTHON VS GATOROID at the legendary Ziegfield Theatre.

Latt sent us these exclusive and crappy iPhone photos of the event:

You can see some photos from a professional photographer with a real camera here.

MEGA PYTHON VS GATOROID airs this Saturday night only on Syfy.

Jaz Martin plays a promising student forced into the deadly world of illegal street racing when his brother is killed by a drug dealer and racing rival.

AnnaMaria DeMara, Darren Thomas, and Hennely Jimenez round out the cast of mostly newcomers in this exciting and sexy look at the underground racing scene in Los Angeles.

Mega Music

Jan 20, 2011 in Headline, News, Other, Releases

The stars of MEGA PYTHON VS GATOROID, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson (pictured) have both released singles from the soundtrack of the movie.

“Serpentine” and “Snake Charmer” couldn’t be more different in style; one is country, the other is dance; but both are kick ass!

Show your support by buying boht of the songs from the iTunes Store.

And while you’re there, download some Asylum movies… if you can find them…

But, most importantly, tune in to watch MEGA PYTHON VS GATOROID on Saturday, January 29 at 9 pm EST only on Syfy.


Sometimes I’m Surprised

Jan 13, 2011 in Headline, News, Other

When I published my last post about making comments on our movies, I really wasn’t fishing for compliments.

My only purpose was to try to address the concerns from our employees about some of the nasty comments they’ve had to endure while just trying to do their jobs.  

To be honest, I kind of expected the comments mailbox to be instantly filled with “vitriolic rhetoric.”

Instead, except for this one guy (who sent his email to the comments box AND every one of our employees), the box was filled with emails of support and encouragement.

Thank you all for the kind words… and thanks for surprising me.

We (Don’t All) Want to Hear From You

Jan 04, 2011 in Headline, News, Other

Warning: This post and some of its links include strong language.

I realize that if you are the type of person who takes the time to search for our website in order to tell us how much you hate our movies, you are clearly someone who has a lot of free time.

Nonetheless, we want to make it easier for you to let your views be known. Therefore, if you really, really need to tell us that we are “cunt sucking bi-curious bum-rushing fucktards,*” please send your emails to comments@theasylum.cc.

And if you’re concerned that your email will never be read, rest assured that that is not the case. In fact, we might even feature it on this page, like these and these.

Again, I know that between eating frozen burritos and reading issues of Cahiers du cinema, you don’t have much to do, but PLEASE stop sending your comments to every person on our Company page. Most of these people don’t have anything to do with the decisions about the movies we make. They just work here.

And, believe me, they suffer enough without having you tell them to “fuck off*” every day.
