B-Movie Monday: Asylum-mania!

In dedication to the airing of Princess of Mars on SyFy last, B-Movie Monday celebrates the masters of the mockbusters: The Asylum. Made on a major movie catering budget, designed to cash in on recent blockbusters, the following trailers may look a "little" familiar...

One of the things I like about the Asylum is that they realise they are making movies to make money, and make no apologies for it. This cheerful defiance makes reading their website at rather amusing. My favorite quote on the site regards people who complain about Asylum movies that are gotten for "free":

Look, I’m not trying to end internet piracy, but I think there should be a new rule: If you illegally download a movie, you forfeit the right to go online and talk shit about it.

And I’m not saying you have to like our movies. But if you got something for free don’t complain about it.

That right belongs to the people who actually paid money to watch the crap we make.

Now, they have something to complain about…

And on that note, join me every Monday for B-Movie Monday!

I've never owned any of their movies but have seen most of them on Sy-Fy.
I watch them cause they are crap, I love a fun cheesy movies(Transmorphers 2 aside, it really was just crap.), or when you get to see 80's pop star Tiffany looking all bouncy a MILFalicious is fun. So movie of this ilk just like Full Moon stuff can be incredibly entertaining! I tend to find it is a 2 out of 3 ratio for finding great movies by both companies.
