    The Asylum

    Ok, "The Asylum" are apparently a genuine film-making company.
    Basically, their problem is this: They take big name movies such as I Am Legend and Cloverfield and take their script, edit it a bit and then make their own cheap version of the movie and make it a straight to DVD feature.

    One good example of this is their movie, "Transmorphers". Which as you can all tell, has been copied from Transformers:The Movie.

    How this is perfectly legal I dont know, but I just wanted to see what you guys think. :\

    It's not like it's a bitch for Hollywood.
    They're low budget films that no one heard about.

    Well, the cake IS a lie, but I chose no.

    I mean, come on, that is complete shit. How would you like it if you spent forever on making a great animation, then some noob on youtube edits half of the frames and takes credit for it?
    That's exactly what's going on here.

    Re: The Asylum

    Hah, very creative. I vote no.

    I think my dad bought a dvd a long while back which title was: "Witches of the Caribbean"
    Another was: "Island of the Dead" - which had no zombies, and disappointed me greatly.

    Well whatever, I hate these ripoff movies.

    I know the cake is a lie, but what business does it have er... 30,000 leagues under the sea? <
