First Images of Mario Van Peebles and Carl Weathers Aboard The Asylum’s American Battleship

It was a month ago when word first broke that The Asylum is getting back to its classical mockbuster ways with American Battleship, the company's take on this summer’s mega budget board game-inspired Battleship. Now we have our first look at stars Mario Van Peebles and Carl Weathers on the set as they try to prevent intergalactic aquatic invaders from sinking their battleship.

Make a Date in March with Syfy's Monster Man

We've been looking forward to Syfy's upcoming new original docuseries "Monster Man" since we first heard about it, and now we know when we'll be able to see it! Look for the "Monster Man" premiere on Wednesday, March 14th, at 11:00 PM (ET/PT).

First Look at Jane March and Fire-Breathing Reptiles Terrorizing Grimm's Snow White

Fairy tales are hot again in Hollywood. You’ve got “Once Upon a Time” and “Grimm” on TV. Bryan’s Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer and Pixar’s Brave continue the trend on big screens this summer. And we’re getting not one, but two – TWO – Snow White movies. No wonder The Asylum is jumping on the trend with Grimm’s Snow White.

Will Jordan Ladd and Reginald VelJohnson Survive an Air Collision?

He partnered with John McClane in Die Hard & contended with Urkel on “Family Matters”. She died from a flesh-eating virus in Cabin Fever & had sex with a Broken Lizard in Club Dread. Watch this trailer to see if Reginald VelJohnson & Jordan Ladd can survive a catastrophic Air Collision.

Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies To Make Asylum History

He won the Civil War. Freed the slaves. Slayed the vampires. Even found time to kill Confederate zombies. No wonder Abraham Lincoln is considered our greatest President. That last bit of Lincoln-ism will be the subject of the latest Asylum mockbuster Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies.

See Brooke Hogan Beat Off a Sea Monster in New 2-Headed Shark Attack Stills

Oh, Brooke Hogan. So lovely. So shapely. You look so good sandwiched between the dual jaws of a giant-ass killer shark, blood pooling up around you in the water. The only thing that could make this any better is if your dad, Hulk Hogan, showed up to drop the leg (and have it bitten off) on this non-stop killing machine!

Holiday Fun Dread Central Style!

Ah yes, kids! It's in the air. Everyone's just a little happier and smiling just a bit more. Festive decor lines the streets, we've been spiking our eggnog since Tuesday, and I'm finally done adding glitter and paint to my testicles (one red, one green) so I can dangle them like mistletoe anywhere I can that won’t involve me getting thrown into jail for the weekend.

The Japanese Know How to Make Syfy and Asylum Movies Look Awesome

Eye-catching artwork is something American DVD distributors seem to either take for granted or are just no damn good at, especially when it comes to selling B-movies. The Japanese, on the other hand, can make a $2 million Syfy TV movie look like a $200 million blockbuster. As a special Christmas treat, I’m here to gift you with 60 stunning examples showcasing the awesomeness of the artwork for Syfy and The Asylum Japanese DVD releases.

Official Artwork Reveal: Nazis at the Center of the Earth

Not a day has passed since Foy uncovered the Asylum endeavor Nazis at the Center of the Earth that we haven't prayed to the video gods that it lives up to the zaniness of its moniker. Another piece of the puzzle has been uncovered in the form of the official artwork, and we have it for you right here!

First Images Reveal the Horror of Nazis at the Center of the Earth

If the History Channel's "Ancient Aliens" is correct, the notorious Nazi mad scientist Dr. Josef Mengele may have escaped with some of his SS brethren to another galaxy in a UFO. Or… If The Asylum is correct, Mengele and his living dead Gestapo escaped deep underground. The Asylum may be right about this one because they have photographic evidence of Nazis at the Center of the Earth.

Mario Van Peebles and Carl Weathers Board The Asylum's American Battleship

Of all the upcoming blockbusters for The Asylum to do a mockbuster of, I commend the gutsy call made to ride the coattails of one that has already been the subject of much snickering and eye-rolling. Then again, they’re used to snickering and eye-rolling. But by hiring Sonny Spoon and Apollo Creed, their American Battleship already has the cooler cast.

2-Headed Shark Attack Trailer Rears Both of its Ugly Heads

From the studio that brought you the Mega Shark movies, Mega Piranha, and 2012: Moby Dick comes The Asylum’s latest foray into monstrous sea life. Bear witness to Carmen Electra, Brooke Hogan, Charlie O’Connell, and a slew of nearly bare bodies as they fall prey to its twin jaws of toothy terror in the trailer for 2-Headed Shark Attack.
