Most of the-world-is-being-destroyed! flicks don’t have budgets like 2012 or The Day After Tomorrow, so I didn’t expect much from the special effects in Meteor Apocalypse. And to give the creators of the film some credit, the effects weren’t That bad. You know what I mean; they weren’t Superboy; The Complete First Season bad. Unfortunately though, the plot Was that bad…and I usually love these types of movies; even the ones that border on being completely asinine.
The film begins with a botched attempt by the government to destroy a massive meteor on course to blast into our planet, breaking it into hundreds of smaller meteors which still blast into our planet. David Dematti (Joe Lando, of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman fame) is home with his wife and daughter when the first meteors strike. David is called into work, and once he arrives he discovers his co-worker foaming at the mouth. »

When I got word from my man Avery that The Asylum had officially announced their mockbuster of Alex Aja’s Piranha 3D, I was not the least bit surprised other than I fully expected them to just add an "s" on the end and call it Piranhas. Instead the Asylum madmen have decided to up the ante by making it a Mega Piranha.
Now the question becomes whether Mega Piranha means we should expect a super-sized piranha a la Asylum's Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (review here) or if they are basing their film around the prehistoric Megapiranha, a toothier, three-foot version of the carnivorous fish that went extinct millions of years ago. Given the big screen 3D remake is about these Megapiranha, I would say odds are high the latter will prove the case. No further details as of now, but expect that to change very shortly.
