Find out more about how your privacy is protected. Oct The Asylum, A Talk through St. Louis Mental Health. Sales Ended. Event description. Join author Amanda Hunyar to get a detailed look at The Asylum. The composition of contemporary B movies is dictated by middlemen like Netflix and Redbox , international direct-to-DVD distributors, and cable networks like Syfy, all of which pad their offerings with Asylum originals tailored to their needs.
Takin' Over the Asylum
If a Japanese DVD company wants a submarine, and Blockbuster needs a monster, the Asylum will make a sailors-meet-sea creature movie, then tweak the concept further to sell to all its potential platforms. At surviving brick-and-mortar stores like H. When Latt runs down the list of the Asylum films slated for production in the first half of this year, it sounds like a list of hot-button search terms: zombies, sharks, haunted houses, talking dogs.
Last fall, the Asylum pushed out Golden Winter , in which talking puppies save Christmas. This spring, it started production on Holiday Heist , a slight permutation—adult talking dogs save Christmas. Silly puffs of flour and hot sauce.
Actions and Detail Panel
Cute dogs. Ward is responsible for keeping Holiday Heist cheap, which means a skeleton crew, a clipped shooting schedule, and fewer dogs. The filmmakers are all laughing. Like Horton, Lando fell into the gig after making a bid for critical relevance—he worked as a cinematographer on indies for a decade, but came away demoralized by the emotional and financial fallout of making labors of love that no one ever saw.
At Syfy, Lando follows a strict formula for its movies of the week: an eight-act plot structure, laced with kills every seven minutes, plus a plot recap disguised as dialogue an hour into the feature to brief viewers who are just tuning in. When Lando jumped on Twitter during the premiere of a new Syfy movie, he was surprised to find that some people out there were actually terrified by a sharktopus.
Then there are those viewers who are dumb enough to watch the movie, but smart enough to be offended. The important thing is that someone watched it—or, at least, clicked on the movie-poster thumbnail.
