  • Travis, I have to ask: Have you yet feasted your eyes on Mega Python VS. Gatoroid? Debbie Gibson AND Tiffany! Mickey Dolenz as himself! And I don’t want to spoil it, but someone may or may not use the lyrics of I Think We’re Alone Now as dialogue.

  • Ah, Christ..

    I had made a mental note of its release date after having scoped it out on The Asylum’s page a month or so ago.  Thank you (or screw you, I haven’t decided) for the reminder!

  • Haha. No problem! From what I can remember, there were lots of scenes in a helicopter in that one and in it’s (spiritual) prequel, the Tiffany-starring Mega Piranha. 

    Also, I watch good movies too. I feel I needed to say that.
