What makes a celebrity do an Asylum film? Traci Lords did Princess of Mars for daycare money. And The Asylum has royally bashed her for bashing them over this incident. Mark Dacascos knows one of the people who was running I Am Omega. What could have possessed Tiffany to do not one, but two Asylum films?
Tiffany plays a scientist who creates a genetically enhanced species of piranha. After a U.S. representative is eaten by the piranha, a specialist is brought in to figure who killed the diplomat. After the specialist comes face to face with the killer fish, he brings it up to the corrupt general and shrugs it off. Now, the fish are growing bigger and hungry with every passing minute.
I am giving this film a 2/5. I was annoyed at the inconsistancies in the size of the killer fish. Whenever they talk about the size, they'll say it's as big as a car. Then it shows it as big as a car, in one shot. Then, it'll cut to another shot and it's about a quarter of the size whenever they are jumping about in the water. Acting is pretty rough in this too and not believeable. Tiffany looks rough as hell in this movie, in comparison to Mega Python Vs Gatoroid.
Shot digitally like all Asylum films, if you've seen my reviews on past titles, then there is nothing new to report. With the exception that the PQ is slightly better this time around. Details are fair and there's a nice level of grain that pops up. I give Echo Bridge's video presentation a 4/5.
Considering that Echo Bridge released this film right off the bat that it got it's general DVD release from The Asylum, we have an English DTS-HD MA 2.0 track for the film. Sound is really good for a 2.0 track. Generally, with Asylum DVDs, you'll have a 5.1 Dolby Digital track. It's a shame that we couldn't have the 5.1 DD over the DTS-HD MA 2.0 track, but, it'll do. 5/5 for the audio.
Like all these Echo Bridge/Asylum Blu-rays, no extras.
You can get this for $5. If you can't find it airing on the Sci-Fi channel or Starz, I'd say it's worth the $5 plus tax. Considering that you can get other Echo Bridge/Asylum Blu-rays for the same price, I'd suggest getting "I Am Omega" or "Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus". 3/5 for this Blu-ray.
