    It sounds hilariously bad. Are you planning to watch this weekend?

    Absolutely! :D

    I love B-movies as the result of watching them on TV growing up. One of the local UHF stations used to have a movie block of a really bad sci-fi (or fantasy or horror movie paired with some of the worst dubbed kung-fu movies ever made.

    Studios like Asylum are great for providing the perfect way to waste away a rainy day.

    An article was written in a local paper about the filming. They sound really proud of it.

    I don't know whether to be happy or sad for them.

    I missed it when it aired! :( I'm hoping it shows up on Netflix soon; even though I only have DSL it is still fast enough for streaming these kinds of movies over the X-Box.
