Because it makes me laugh so much! MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS trailer!!!

Hey folks, Harry here... and you know - Summer time spoils us with quality special effects... well, maybe not WOLVERINE, but generally it's pretty spectacular stuff - but sometimes there's a movie... and let's say this move stars Debbie Gibson and fucking Lorenzo Lameass... but that's ok - that's ok, because the title of this movie is so fucking unbelievably amazing that you look past that... all you know is that you see a Giant Shark eating the Golden Gate Bridge and a fucking Octopus swatting a jet fighter out of the sky - and a shark leaping out of the ocean to pluck a 747 from the sky! This is the shit one needs to see with a minimum of 5 drunk laughing idiot friends on a Friday night when the bong comes out. This is MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS and our lives will never be the same as a result!

    "A proud legacy of pumping out shit and movies distinctly ripped off of whatever is popular at the box office at the time." As for the guy giving respect to FRANKENFISH - I wholeheartedly agree. Fun schlock fest that one is.

    The movie seems to self aware of it's absurdness!

    by Orionsangels

    So that right there kills it. Just in the way the actors deliver their lines. It's like they're looking at the audience and saying. Look how outrageous and silly this movie is, it'll become a cult favorite. No it doesn't work that way! The film makers have to be serious about their project and think they're making a winning film. Not realizing how bad it is, then it's ok to like it for it's cheesiness.

    Zombie Vs Shark.

    by lutz

    Girl goes swimming in the ocean with her tittaes out, gets attacked by a shark, swims away from shark, gets attacked by zombie. Zombie and shark fight. Bless you Fulci.

  • I fear this will have a negative effect on the movie version of Steve Alten's excellent book "Meg"! However, this does look hysterical and I will have to see it for that reason alone!

    by MCVamp

    This trailer is worlds better than "G.I. JOE-IN-NAME-ONLY." Hell, TRANSFORMERS looks like it'll be WRATH OF KHAN compared to G.I. JOE. Switch out Dennis Quaid with David Hasselhoff and it could really go straight to video. Except in Germany, of course.

    I'd watch KNIGHTMARE. It sounds like it has the potential to be very funny.... a suit of armour is very loud and clangy, so I could see a really interesting angle - everyone can hear it coming a long way away, so it's easy to avoid. Hilarious.

    Lorenzo Lamas and the Undertaker

    by classyfredblassy

    A buddy of mine worked on the crew for one the last movies Lamas did in the 90s. One of the bad guys was played by the Undertaker from the WWE. They had a wrap party at the end of filming, and Lamas got really tanked. He was going around to everyone telling them he could kick their ass because he was black belt. He then yelled out that he could kick anyone's ass on the set. The Undertaker got up from his chair, grabbed him by the neck, and pushed him into wall, his dangling off the ground. Then Lamas said in a squeaky voice, "any one but you! any one but you!" True story.

    Fuck Asylum

    by GhostDad

    Fuck Asylum. At least Full Moon has some dignity. Asylum's whole market is shitty movies that are similar to a large blockbuster and have a deceiving title (king of the lost world, Snakes on a Train, Pirates of Treasure Island), hoping people mistakenly rent or buy them. The fact that they're now making stuff like this, that's trying to hard to be a "cult classic" is just bullshit... Full Moon at least was never deceptive. What Asylum should have been, and had the chance to be, was a haven for young up and coming horror filmmakers. Hollywood is only doing Horror remakes or sequels.. all horror scripts, no matter how good they are, are getting passed on. If Asylum cared about the films they make, they'd snatch up some GOOD scripts, find compotent young directors, and give them the resources they dont have access to, HD rigs, sound equipment, etc.. with as well as horror does in DTV rentals and sales, in addition to pre-selling it to SyFy, Chiller and On Demand, they're still make a profit. The reason Corman was successful was because he still had dignity in the way he produced.. fuck, even Golan/Globus made some good little indie films with their American Ninja money. Asylum really had the chance to do things right early on, and they blew it in favor of this shit.

    First off: I don't know if I did call it "Knight of the Living Dead" it would have been made or not. I pitched several ideas to someone associated with them, they thought KNIGHTMARE was the best idea (probably because it was the cheesiest) so I wrote them a treatment and I never heard back from them. <p> I would like to think it is because they have no taste in movies that mine wasn't optioned, because if my treatment wasn't better than Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, man, am I going to be depressed.

    GhostDad, Ted, re=B-Movies

    by Continentalop

    When I first got to LA, I was catching the tail end of the video boom. Full Moon was turning into a purely softcore company, and Roger Corman/Concorde was still turning out movies, but Corman himself wasn’t putting his heart into it (of course, he was getting old back than so who blames him for finally getting tired). <p> Still, a young kid like myself could come from the midwest with little or no college training in the film world and land a job as a PA and work his way up to editing and writing scripts in just over a a year. And sure a lot of the stuff we made was schlock, but damn it we tried to make it the best schlock you could. I remember actually having debates with the directors of T&A flicks about how we could make the plot make more sense or if the audience was going to empathize with the main character. Shit, it was a movie about girls getting naked and we were treating it like it was GoodFellas. But it was better than any film school and you actually got hands on training and a chance to be creative. <p> After I took a break from working in the business I came back and the first thing I worked on was another low budget movie, Stan Lee’s Lightspeed. World of difference. The movies we worked on in the past weren’t good, but at least people tried or had aspirations. I think the only one who was really trying on this one was the director, but he had no clue about the super-hero genre at all. And, to top it off, he was actually a studio DP (did Jeepers Creepers) and also directed bigger budget features. Nothing against him for doing that, but I was wondering why don’t they just hire a hungry young kid instead of someone who is financially secure. The kid is going to put his heart and soul into this movie; this guy (nice as he was) was just looking at it as a job. Once he was done, he would move on without worry about the film. <p> And that is where I think these companies went wrong. There no longer is a low budget dream factory for people (especially young people) trying to break into the business. I’m not saying they made better movies in the past, I am just saying as crappy as they were at least you could see a little bit of soul and passion in things like Subspecies, Black Scorpion, Puppet Master, Invisible: The Chronicles of Benjamin Knight, or even the first Carnosaur.
