The Asylum

It’s easy to bash The Asylum (Syfy channel) movies because, well they suck. I don’t think I’ve been able to sit through one all the way. But I like what they are doing, cranking out horror and science fiction movies for about 100k and making money on every one. I just wish the movies were a bit smarter and more self-aware. I’m very conscious of The Asylum model and comparisons are inevitably being made, and there are a few nods to them in Insectula. I’m trying to make a movie of what The Asylum could be, a bit more like American International was…taking more of a chance on originality now and then. We’ll see what happens.
