It looks like another straight-to-DVD horror is about to be unleashed upon the unsuspecting population. A somewhat condescending report from CNN on the Cannes Film Festival made brief mention of the upcoming Mega Shark vs Giganotosaurus movie from The Asylum; a sequel (of sorts) to their Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus film. While the poster art is pretty slick, I think that I’ll just keep my enthusiasm in check for the time being. Let’s not forget that Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus was a fun, over the top, monster-filled trailer. The actual movie? Not so much.
I also find the choice of monsters more than a little odd too, given that there isn’t a mutual environment where both adversaries could actually fight each other on equal terms. So... I guess the victor will be determined by which creature mistakenly crosses over into its rival’s territory first? Did Asylum come up with this idea by haphazardly choosing two names from a list of pre-existing computer assets from all their various productions?
Perhaps a better choice of title might be Battle of the Random Pairing of Computer Generated Models from The Asylum Special Effects Library.
