With Sharknado 5 making a splash on TV screens across the globe these past few weeks, what better time to visit the world of The Asylum?

With that in mind, here’s my pick of the Top 5 (because it’s Sharknado Five… geddit?!?) movies from The Asylum in – shock, horror – order of preference…

5) Avengers Grimm

An off-the-wall mix of Grimm Fairy tale characters and superhero team-up movies which, frankly, should have been obvious given the title, Avengers Grimm’s plot is relatively simple: when Rumpelstiltskin uses the Magic Mirror to escapes to the modern world taking Snow White with him and destroying the mirror in the process,

Lady Bloodfight Trailer: An Insane, Blood-Soaked Fight to the Death
Vertical Entertainment has released the first trailer from their upcoming action-thriller Lady Bloodfight, which is set for a theatrical release on May 5. The studio has also provided us with the first poster that takes us closer into the action, showcasing the characters who square off against each other in a brutal fighting tournament known as The Kumite. While this tournament bears the same name as the tournament portrayed in the 1988 classic Bloodsport, this upcoming action-thriller showcases an all-female tournament.

Lady Bloodfight centers on Jane (Amy Johnston), a beautiful but troubled American girl backpacking her way through Hong Kong. When she successfully fends off three thugs trying to rob her, she draws the attention of Shu (Muriel Hofmann), a Wudang champion, who is impressed by her raw street fighting abilities. Shu recruits Jane and trains her to fight in the vicious, all-female, underground martial arts tournament known as "The Kumite" in

Exclusive: Transformers: Combiner Wars Interview With Amy Johnston

Cbm recently had the pleasure of interviewing Amy Johnston, the voice of Maxima in Machinima and Hasbro's Transformers: Combiner Wars animated series which is currently streaming on go90.  In our chat, we touched on her performance as Maxima, whether there's more seasons of Combiner Wars coming down the line and also discussed some of her current and past projects.  While Johnston does a bang-up job providing voice acting for Maxima in Combiner Wars, her day-to-day occupation is kicking ass as a stunt actor and motion capture performer.  She's a frequent collaborator  with Bat in the Sun and played Harley Quinn in the Super Power Beat Down episode that featured Joker & Harley vs Deadpool & Domino.  She also had a role in the underrated 2013 underground-fighting thriller, Raze which starred  Zoë Bell and Rachel Nichols.  She also has a presence in anime fandom, as Dragon Ball fans should recognize Amy as the face

Film Review: ‘Camino’

Film Review: ‘Camino’
As if her first teaming with director Josh C. Waller on his 2013 debut feature, “Raze” — involving a sort of lethal female fight club — weren’t punishing enough, Zoe Bell gets pummeled (and occasionally shot) throughout most of “Camino.” This thriller abandons that earlier pic’s featureless underground interiors for dense jungle terrain, but otherwise similarly trades in violent action as our photojournalist heroine flees the anti-government freedom fighters who’ve turned on her. Set in 1985 Colombia, “Camino” is a competent but unmemorable B-movie that eschews any real political content in favor of simple, brutal survival melodrama with scant room for surprises in plot, character or directorial style. Bowing on VOD and iTunes March 8, just days after a limited theatrical launch, this resourceful low-budgeter should do well enough as a streaming item in various markets.

Having just won a photojournalist-of-the-year award for her coverage of war zones, Avery Taggert (Bell) is

Icons of Fright Chat With Camino Star Nacho Vigalondo!

Director Nacho Vigalondo blew film goers away with his 2007 time-travel thriller Timecrimes, a film that redefined the genre and offered a very smart look at the time travel film fare. Always the maverick, Vigalondo continued to offer new and interesting films, like 2014’s Open Windows and his eerie entry into the horror anthology film V/H/S/:Viral. Now stepping in front of the camera in Josh C. Waller (Raze)’s action film Camino (in theaters now and on VOD and iTunes on March 8th.), Vigalondo gives viewers one hell of a villain in Guillermo, a very dangerous man intent on silencing star Zoe Bell for good. We had a chat with Vigalondo about the film and a Very memorable (at least to us) karaoke performance. Read on!

I wouldn’t have pegged you as a villain in a film, how did your involvement come about?

It was Josh and Daniel’s idea.

Fantastic Fest 2015: Camino – The Review

Zoe Bell has proven that she’s up to the challenge of getting her hands dirty in films like Raze, Bitch Slap, and her career igniting role in Death Proof. Her physicality is without question. She more than holds her own in Camino as she rumbles in the jungle with a bunch of Columbian thugs. There’s a stark realism to her maneuvers, punches, and kicks, but the stunt woman turned actress from New Zealand doesn’t quite have the strength to carry this 70’s and 80’s throwback action film. Camino suffers from a case of being both monotonous and feeling like a film you’ve seen done better before.

Avery Taggert (Zoe Bell) is an award-winning photojournalist. Her new assignment is to venture into the jungles of Colombia and document a group of religious freedom fighters led by Fantastic Fest mainstay and all-around wild man Nacho Vigalondo – an inspired bit of casting.

Zoe Bell/Nacho Vigalondo-led Camino Headed Your Way in 2016 From XLrator Media’s Turbo Label

It’s pretty impossible not to love Zoë Bell. The Raze/Death Proof star has a certain charm that makes it a fun experience to see her in anything, so even the slightest announcement is enough to make fans cheer in excitement. Fully funded by Bleiberg Entertainment, the Bell-led Camino, which also features Time Crimes/Open Windows director Nacho Vigalondo in a leading role as the devious “El Guero”. Taking palce in the mid 1980’s, Camino deals with a war photographer that must escape the jungles of Columbia, all while having a noose around her neck.

Already sounding quite exciting, it’s now been announced that XLrator Media’s new Turbo label will be releasing the film sometime in 2016, and we’ve got a still straight from Camino to you fright fanatics.

Set in 1985, war photographer Avery Taggert (Zoë Bell) has built a solid career with her stark and honest imagery,

Camino: XLrator Media Acquires Action Thriller, Starring Zoe Bell And Nacho Vigalondo

XLrator Media announced today that they will distribute Josh C. Waller's action-thriller Camino. The film stars action star Zoe Bell, who led Waller's last film Raze, and Twitch fave, director Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Open Windows). Set in 1985, war photographer Avery Taggert (Zoë Bell) has built a solid career with her stark and honest imagery, all the while remaining emotionally distant from her subjects. When she embeds in the jungles of Colombia with a squad of missionaries led by a beloved and charismatic Spaniard known as "El Guero" (Nacho Vigalondo), she finds herself in the middle of a conflict as violent as any she's photographed. One night, she happens upon El Guero committing a heinous atrocity, capturing the vile act on film, an image with the...

Neuchatel 2015 Interview: Zoë Bell Talks Jumping Through Fire And Moving Into Acting

While within the industry, stunt people are appreciated for their incredible work and discipline, not many of them reach the cult status of Zoë Bell. From her work on Xena: Warrior Princess to Kill Bill, and her transition to acting in Death Proof and Raze, Bell's story is not just one of luck and timing, but passion, commitment, and all-around skill and talent can and does get recognized. I had the pleasure of chatting with her at Nifff, where she is on the International Competition Jury this year. Not only was this one of the most fun interviews I've ever done, but I think I have a new hero.Shelagh Rowan-Legg: When did you decide you wanted to work in film as a stunt person?Zoë Bell:...

Zoe Bell Becomes Gator Bait in Freshwater

Zoe Bell’s made a career kicking ass in the movies. Judging by the premise of her new nature gone amok thriller Freshwater, it sounds like she better be ready to add alligator wrestling to her impressive array of fighting skills.

Zoe Bell (Deathproof, Raze) and Joe Lando (“Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”, “The Secret Circle”) headline writer-director Brandy Berry’s currently in-production Southern fried creature feature entitled Freshwater. Amy Paffrath, John Bobek, and Alison Haislip co-star.

Synopsis:

Lake Charles in Louisiana is the idyllic spot to catch some sun and enjoy the tranquil miles of freshwater. When a group of 20-somethings meet up at their island lake house for a weekend of partying, one of the friends never shows up. As more lake visitors are yanked underwater by what seems to be some giant alligators, the screams bring the group out of the lake house. Frantically discovering their boat has drifted away,
