The Asylum Wants Mega-Shark to Kill You
After 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.
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.
