The Asylum Wants Mega-Shark to Kill YouAfter years of people wanting to kill them, the little studio that could (rip off anyone and anything) is turning the tables on its fans and is now looking for a chance to kill them. Interested in biting the big one? Read on for details.

From the Press Release
The Asylum is excited to announce its latest fan contest: One devoted fan of the MEGA SHARK franchise will win a walk-on role, including a death scene, in MEGA SHARK VS. MECHA SHARK. Entrants must prove that they are the most devoted MEGA SHARK fan by presenting photographic or video evidence of their fandom, plus a brief description of themselves and why they deserve to win. One winner will receive a two-day trip to Los Angeles, including air fare and lodging, and a walk-on role in the film.

What qualifies as “proof” of ultimate fan devotion? Anything. The Asylum will evaluate photos and videos sent in by our fans of body art, painting, sculpture, music, and every other kind of fan tribute imaginable. The contest will be judged by employees of The Asylum based on creativity, intensity, and displayed level of enthusiasm for MEGA SHARK. That’s it. It’s open-ended, it’s subjective, and it’s entirely dependent on what our fans end up turning in as evidence of their deep and abiding passion for MEGA SHARK and The Asylum. Anything is possible; anything, even pre-existing fan art and the like, will qualify, as long as it is demonstrably the original work of the entrant.

Submissions must be sent here by 5pm PST on July 30. Participants must be available August 1 through August 15. For contest rules and details, click here.

The MEGA SHARK series began with MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS (2009), starring Deborah Gibson, Lorenzo Lamas, and Vic Chao. It was released on DVD and VOD and quickly became a cult hit. The 2010 follow-up, MEGA SHARK VS. CROCOSAURUS, starred Jaleel White and Gary Stretch. Love of MEGA SHARK runs deep: In the past, fans of the MEGA SHARK franchise have shown us everything from entire galleries of original fan art to full-back tattoos of Mega Shark and his cephalopod foe.

Things Get Bloody on Blu-ray When The Sword and the Claw Clash!

Published

on

Get ready to fight dirty as the two-fisted, ultraviolent grindhouse classic The Sword and the Claw is poised to hose down your home video collection with geysers of arterial spray! Coming to us from Alamo Drafthouse’s American Genre Film Archive on January 23, 2018, this is one title you’re not gonna wanna miss!

We’ve been obsessed with Turkish genre films for decades,” said AGFA director Joe Ziemba. “We were blown away to discover that we had the only known 35mm print in existence for this movie, which also happens to be Turkey’s most insane battle epic. This is the first 4K preservation of a Turkish genre film in history. We couldn’t be happier to share it with the world.

Special features include a new 4K scan from the only surviving 35mm theatrical print, face-smashing action trailers from the AGFA vault, and bonus movie Brawl Busters, which features a new 2K scan from an original theatrical print.

The eye candy doesn’t stop there either! This bad boy is coming with some neat reversible cover art with illustration by Alexis Ziritt (Space Riders)!

Synopsis:
They took his money. They took his family. And now, they’ve taken his hands. But they can never take his revenge! Exploding from the same hallucinogenic netherworld as TURKISH STAR WARS, THE SWORD AND THE CLAW stars Turkish genre legend Cüneyt Arkin in his most iconic role. It’s CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals, and bizarro dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle. This is the movie that Kung-Fu Express described as the “Dirtiest fighting ever!”
