This just in. The film studio that brought us "Mega Piranha," "MegaFault," and my favorite "Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus" is set to jump on two bandwagons at the same time. The Asylum, the low budget, fast and cheap movie studio that seems like a feeder for the SyFy Network is rushing out their own past president film. Trying to beat out the certain summer blockbuster "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer" they have created their own spinoff "Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies".
The first trailer is out and it doesn't tell us much more than what the title already does. We see President Lincoln, we see zombies, we see Lincoln fight zombies. See it here http://youtu.be/0tFaQYSFLuE
Quality is not quite in The Asylum's working vocabulary, but fast and dirt cheap are. Although most of their movies do have some redeeming comic value. I do have a copy of "Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus" on Blu-ray even, if only to see a giant saw eat the Golden Gate Bridge. (Don't blink, it doesn't take too many bites.)
Never one to rest or do something original, The Asylum also has their own fairy tale movie coming out soon, "Grimm's Snow White".
At least The Asylum is giving some young unknown actors their first big break. Who knows, maybe some future Academy Award winner will be comically embarrassed when someone shows a clip from their first acting job. My fingers are crossed.
Look for these "original" movies coming soon from The Asylum. "American Battleship," "Alien Origin," and my soon to be favorite, even though I haven't seen a clip yet, "Nazis At The Center Of The Earth". Maybe they have something to do with the strange booms around Clintonville, WI this past week. Hmmmmm.
