I miss posting here, but I’m just far too busy these days to write things no one reads (Marie keeps telling me blogs are so 2009).
Normally I just ignore (or mock) negative emails I receive, but for some reason I’ve felt compelled to respond to this one:
This is not a letter of hate, or a letter of how much i like your “Films” But a letter of reason.
I don’t hate your films, but i don’t like them
Why do you bother making low-budget cheaply made films, with terrible actors and visuals? Can’t you think of your own creation without copying or mocking someone’s masterpiece? To be honest, i can’t believe that you haven’t been sued yet? What’s the point in making Alien VS Hunter? are you trying to win us over by making some crappy horrible cheap film, that everybody knows is nothing but a piece of shit.
I believe if you want to gain success, to be recognised, to not be considered “A low budget film company” Then I ask, many film makers have done it before, time and time again.. Make you own film for a change, instead of mocking someone else’s because you have no idea, how much time, money and effort goes into making a Blockbuster and we sure don’t need another one of your crappy “Mockbusters” consider this, for once, consider this.. Please
No, Jeremy, yours is not a letter of reason. It’s an opinion.
Ignoring the fact that only about 20% of our movies are Mockbusters, I’ll tell you why we bother making them:
The Asylum has been in business for almost 17 years. We employ and provide benefits to 35 full time employees and production work for thousands of actors, directors, writers, and crew. Our movies have aired on Syfy, Lifetime, Animal Planet, Space, and Showtime. You can find them on Netflix, Hulu, Video-On-Demand, the three or four video stores that still exist, and available in more than 50 countries. We’ve made 200 movies and none of them have lost money.
None of this would be possible if everyone had the same opinion that you do. The fact is, there are millions of people who do like our movies. I’m sorry you’re not one of them.
I do agree with you about one thing though: Alien vs Hunter is a piece of shit.
But that’s just my opinion…
