This weekend the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hands out the Oscars for best movies of 2010 and the Razzies hand out their awards for the worst movies of 2010. But first, I have my own belated movie awards to dish out: the annual tradition of taking one last jab at the worst direct-to-DVD horror movies of 2010. The pain... The pain...
The tragic story of the late 1970's exorcism of a young German girl named Anneliese Michel was the basis of the 2005 horror film The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Previously only a few photographs and audio tapes of Anneliese's exorcisms existed. Now, out of the blue, word comes that alleged footage of the Anneliese exorcisms is coming to DVD on March 1st.
No. Battle: Los Angeles will not be airing for free on Syfy 24 hours after it opens in theaters. Don’t be silly. Did you not notice the word “of” between “Battle” and “Los Angeles”? What do you suppose that could mean? If you answered “a new Asylum mockbuster”, you win the mega no-prize.
The time has come. The stars have aligned. Mega Python vs. Gatoroid premieres on Syfy this weekend. Tiffany and Debbie Gibson are so excited the two one-time teen pop singers have recorded new songs for the soundtrack.

Syfy has a gift for all of us this Christmas: four exclusive clips from Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. Warring gargantuan reptiles: truly the gift that keeps on giving.
Last week I brought you word of The Asylum's marvelous mockbuster Almighty Thor that you may or may not have missed as it was on a day when there was a mad crush of movie news. Now The Asylum has posted the first pics from the set, and it's quite apparent we are in for something truly special one way or another.
Marvel's Thor may have Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins as Odin, but could Hopkins powerbomb a guy through a table like pro wrestler "Big Sexy" Kevin Nash, who will be playing the ruler of Asgard in The Asylum's mockbuster Almighty Thor? Advantage: The Asylum.

Yesterday's story about The Asylum's 2012: Moby Dick was only the beginning as the American Film Market is about to swing into high gear, and that means production companies are unveiling titles and production art for a slew of movies they intend to bring us in the coming year ...
I'm not sure what Herman Melville would think if he were alive today and saw the trailer for The Asylum's 2010: Moby Dick. He'd probably be more upset to know that whaling is predominantly outlawed and frowned upon by modern society. He'd probably also be tickled to see the guy from MegaForce hamming it up as Captain Ahab.

Not content to just have in production Mega Python vs. Gatoroid starring Eighties pop princesses Debbie Gibson and Tiffany, The Asylum is also pressing forward with Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus, and this time their stunt casting dips into 1990's pop culture with the announcement it will star none other than Jaleel White, best known to fans of "Family Matters" as that lovable nerd Steve Urkel.
The Asylum originally planned the release of their audacious Mega Piranha as something of a mockbuster designed to coincide with the then planned theatrical release of Piranha 3D. When Piranha 3D got pushed back to this weekend, I joked that maybe this time The Asylum can claim that the theatrical movie is mockbustering them. According to the odd press release that showed up in my box today, they've taken my jest to heart.
I hadn't intended to write another article about The Asylum's forthcoming take on Moby Dick so soon after an article mentioning it along with several other upcoming Asylum genre offerings, but since they've now put out artwork and some production stills and other sites have picked up on it, might as well...
