The Asylum Vs. Mainstream Films: 8 Blockbusters And Their Poor, Inbred Cousins
Perhaps you already knew this, but the production company behind Sharknado has made a niche for itself by releasing horrible movies. You’re shocked, right?

The similarly titled and plotted films then go on to fool the elderly and those that only read the first few letters of a title on Pay Per View/OnDemand before ordering it.
They in the foolin’ people bidness. And cousin, bidness is a-boomin’.
