"Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus is a disaster film by The Asylum, released direct-to-DVD on May 19, 2009. Featuring veteran actor Lorenzo Lamas and singer/songwriter Deborah Gibson, the film was originally titled Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus 3D, but '3D' was stricken from the title when the studio failed to acquire adequate funding for 3-D film. The theatrical trailer released in mid-May 2009 became a viral hit, scoring over a million hits on MTV.com and another million more on YouTube upon launch, prompting brisk pre-orders of the DVD.
Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus premiered at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. Coincidentally, Gibson's former music rival Tiffany had her film Necrosis (a.k.a. Blood Snow) premiere at the Cannes as well. Bill Gibron of PopMatters gave the film an 8 out of 10, saying that 'schlock may be an acquired taste, like caviar, foie gras, and Arby's, but it's hard to see how anyone wouldn't enjoy this extremely tacky dish.' He also praised Gibson's performance in the film. Despite criticizing the overall film quality, Stephen of The Three Rs gave the film a 7 out of 10, calling the plane attack scene the epitome of monster awesome ...
On the other hand, Duffmovies.com gave the film a low review, calling it 'a DTV stinker and not even so bad its good. Everyone involved should be thoroughly ashamed and struck off the Screen Actors/Directors guild.'
Following the buzz generated by the release of the film's trailer, Gibson hinted on an interview that a sequel may be in the works. 'Because God knows what else is in the ocean. I thought maybe a seahorse? Maybe a 500-foot lobster would be good. But yes, there is the potential for a sequel, and I would absolutely love it.'"
I'm excited about doing my church-less sunday movie again. It feels like it's been forever that I've had time to just lay around and be lazy by myself. It feels good.
... AND NOW, Steve and this blog are both PROUD to once again present today's Church-less Movie of the Week in its entirety FOR FREE! First, tho, lets go over a few theater rules. Absolutely no talking in Steve Galindo's Theater. Any and all talkers will be mercilessly beheaded. No cell phones or African-American berries going off and making noise in the theater.
