Some things never change. Death. Taxes. Asylum mockbusters and disaster flicks. The Asylum has two new offerings they’ll be releasing during the month of November, and we’ve got everything you need to know right here.
Saving Private Ryan‘s Tom Sizemore and Dominique Swain, who previously contended with the Fourth Reich in The Asylum’s enjoyably loopy Nazis at the Center of the Earth, star in this mockbuster of a certain JJ Abrams-produced World War II horror flick with the same title minus the “Nazi” qualifier.
Rob Pallatina directs from a script by Scotty Mullen, scribe of the last two Sharknado flicks. Having watched the trailer, I can honestly say I have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on outside of Nazi soldiers performing some sort of horrific experiments on Allied soldiers. Things happen; that’s all I can ascertain.
Nazi Overlord blitzkriegs VOD on November 13th.
Against the background of the D-Day invasion, a US military unit must rescue a brilliant British scientist who is held captive by the most dangerous SS guards deep in enemy territory. The Allies’ victory depends on the success of this mission.
End of the World looks like an Asylum mockbuster of Roland Emmerich’s disaster epic 2012 that’s only about five years too late. On second thought, The Asylum has made so many disaster flicks about a desperate family trying stay together and alive while escaping a catastrophic natural disaster… I mean, seriously, this is like their go-to template for nearly every friggin’ disaster flick they make.
Jhey Castles, Joseph Michael Harris, Jacqueline Scislowski, and Evan J. Henderson attempt to survive the End of the World. Michael Varrati penned the script directed by Maximilian Elfeldt, whose name sounds like he should be one of the villains in Nazi Overlord.
The end begins on VOD November 20th. There’s no way this Asylum disaster flick proves to be as entertaining as 2012: Ice Age, the one where a family attempts to outrun a colossal chunk of a glacier that has broken off and is leveling the East Coast like some sort of rampaging ice tsunami — because that’s how science works.
As a mass of solar storms causes tsunamis, volcanoes, and flooding, a city-dwelling family attempts to flee to the relative safety of a group of high-elevation caves several miles away.
