Looks like an outstanding piece of cinema. All that's missing is the frickin' laser beams on their heads.

Is it wrong that I actually, sort of, want to see that?

I mean, purely to see how bad it is, of course.

The thing with Asylum movies, is that they put all the action scenes in the trailer.

But when you watch the actual movie, it's just two hours of talking. And you had already seen all the action scenes in the trailer!

And the actors in them have really goofy looking, weird faces. And they are directed with a complete lack of passion.

Asylum are a really weird company, because their trailers are very cinematic, but their movies aren't at all.

Just seen the trailer. They've certainly pulled out all the stops for the "big" names for this one - Ian Ziering ?. Tara Reid ?.

That's Asylum "A" list

I've noticed lately that The Assylum have had SLIGHTLY better production values.

I wonder who's putting the extra $50 in the kitty.

Just watched it, it's awful...BUT very entertaining. The "sharknado" doesn't arrive until about half an hour before the end though, but the cringeworthy dialogue and acting make the preceding 60 minutes quite amusing. Any film where there's a big pool of bloody water and a character says "i guess it must be that time of the month" has to be worth watching, right? lol.

Tara Reid's career is well and truly dead now though, i mean i just couldn't believe how dire she was in this, considering she was the biggest name in the film she was easily the worst and least enthusiastic of the entire cast...

I'd recommend it though, but only if you think the idea of "blowing up a tornado" sounds funny

See there's the thing - if the Asylum pay anywhere approaching decent money, I could honestly see her being their go-to "name" when they churn out their next opus. She could certainly help shift a few copies on name recognition alone for the American Pie movies.

It keeps her in work and keeps her name out there on the off chance anything else comes along.

You don't want to lose the realism though...

They're saying it was a ratings disaster...

People are so ungrateful. Give them top notch quality drama and they don't even tune in to watch?
