The Asylum is Launching a Cheap, Bad Movie Series at Cinemark Theaters

Today in bad movie news: The Asylum is going theatrical! Yes, the makers of everything from the popular Sharknado series to mockbusters such as Transmorphers or monster movies such as Sharktopus will be taking a theatrical bow this fall, with “Thursday Nights at the Asylum.” Partnering with Cinemark Theaters, the studio will be releasing some of its more infamous creations into theaters for a series of one-night-only screenings. First up: 2012’s 2-Headed Shark Attack, which screens in select theaters nationwide at 10:30 p.m. EST on Thursday, Sept. 28. Tickets are cheap: Just $5 a pop, or $10 if you want to take home a digital download of the film you’re watching.

Most of these films have been distinctly of the “direct to VOD” or “premiered on SyFy” variety, so for the majority this will likely qualify as their big screen debuts. Future installments will include the dubious likes of Zoombies, a film about zombified zoo attractions, and Zombie Spring Breakers, which is … well, pretty much what it sounds like. It all builds up to the latest Sharknado entry, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming on Thursday, Nov. 16, which sadly wasn’t our cup of tea when we watched it for the August premiere.

2-Headed Shark Attack, on the other hand, makes a natural bedfellow with the Sharknados of the world, although it was made a year before The Asylum and SyFy first struck gold by combining the concepts of “shark movie” and “natural disaster movie.” The film stars Carmen Electra, Brooke Hogan (the Hulkster’s daughter, in her only significant film role) and Charlie O’Connell as people who battle … well once again, do we really have to say it? Says the tagline:

When a college educational ship is sunk by a mutated two-headed shark, the survivors escape to a deserted atoll. But when it starts flooding, the coeds are no longer safe from the double jaws of the monster.

Uh huh, sounds about right. If you enjoy a nice bit of dreck like we do, you can find tickets for any of the Thursday Nights at the Asylum right here. Also below: A full list of all the theaters screening 2-Headed Shark Attack.
