Black Summer Is Coming Again

Netflix’s Black Summer was likely akin to a breath of fresh air for zombie fans, which is interesting when you consider that it was created by The Asylum, a studio known primarily for knockoff shlock like Atlantic Rim (Pacific Rim), Operation Dunkirk (Dunkirk), Z Nation (The Walking Dead), Titanic II (Titanic) and the Sharknado movies.

Zoombies – Review

While I’m cobbling together a review for Captain America: Civil War–which won’t probably be ready before Saturday–I figured that I might as well write up something for Zoombies, which turned recently up on Netflix. Despite the title they’re no zombies present–of either the human or animal variety (though you probably noticed the extra ‘o’ in the title, which isn’t […]

Zoombies – Trailer

You might thing that I was intending to wright ‘Zombies,’ but if you did you probably weren’t aware that this is from The Asylum. Zoombies is not about the typical–zombies have become so mainstream that I can write that without a bit of irony–undead but instead zombified animals at a safari park that begin to […]

It’s also proof that despite the […]

Animal – Review

“”Animal” doesn’t break any new ground, but it is attractive to look at, and has some great pratical creature effects.” Anyone who’s read this blog knows that I don’t particularly enjoy features from The Asylum.  For those unfamiliar with the company they produced movies like Sharknado, all those Mega Shark movies, as well as ZNation. My […]

‘The Damned’ Trailer

When I see that a movie is from IFC Midnight I take it as a given that it’s going to be well done.  As far as I know, they don’t actually make any of the movies that bear their name, though what they do do is almost as important, which is to purchase quality horror […]

An Asylum Used To House Insane People…

And as far as I am aware, they still do though it’s also the name of a studio that seems to operate on a similar principal.  What they are known for doing is taking a more established property, like “Battleship,” “Robocop” or “Pacific Rim” and regurgitating “American Warship (which was called ‘American Battleship’ before Universal’s […]
