I had no idea this industry existed... but they basically produce straight to video shite that capitalises on big budget releases.

Check out the trailer for Atlantic Rim


And have a look at the film list and their proper film comparison.


Crafty bastards.

Anyone actually seen any of these?

I saw Titanic 2 and Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies. Titanic 2 was awful, but Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies was surprisingly good.....I rented Snakes on a Train once but never bothered to watch it. They show a lot of them on the Syfy Channel in the US, and I believe they are all on Netflix streaming.

I've seen quite a few of these. Keep your eyes peeled on syfy they pop up a lot. Most of them are hilarious. I'm now desperate to see 200mph

I’ve seen Mega Piranha, Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus, The Amityville Haunting (one on the list), and 100 Ghost St. (this past Sunday actually). I enjoy “bad” horror movies like these in general and watch them on Netflix. It’s very likely I’ll see more on the list in the coming months. I find that they range from actually terrible (Amityville) to stupidly entertaining (Mega Shark series). They often don’t take themselves seriously which is the key. I remember reading that they get sued all the time but given their low budgets and deal with Netflix they tend to turn a profit anyway. I’m a fan overall.
