The Megashark Trilogy

The classic big shark movie trilogy, this is The Asylum’s flagship monster film series, spawning countless other shark and general sea beast movies like Sharknado and Megapiranha. If you want to watch a big-ass shark fighting some other big-ass animals who usually preside in water, this is your trilogy.

Megashark vs Giant Octopus

The one that started it all. Scientists find that within a massive iceberg, two giant creatures have been frozen mid-combat for millions of years. They escape their icy prison and both begin to ravage the seas. Finding that no human weapons appear to be working on the beasts, our heroes decide to pit the two monsters against each other.

Megashark vs Giant Octopus has everything you want from a film called Megashark vs Giant Octopus: Mass destruction, classic lines and the infamous Aeroplane scene. Full to the brim with scenes that would be highlights of other films in this area. This is fully worthy of it’s title as a classic of the genre.

Megashark vs Crocosaurus

Megashark is back, and this time there a big Crocodile. Very similar to the first film, which to be honest is what most people were hoping for. However where the Giant Octopus lives up to its title, Crocosaurus seems like just a slight drop in form. It just doesn’t contain as many fantastic lines, and classic scenes as the first film did. That is not to say that it isn’t enjoyable, it just doesn’t really live up to the high standards set by Giant Octopus.

Megashark vs Mechashark

The long awaited third chapter of the Megashark series. This time a different Megashark in on the loose and has rendered the seas un-usable. It is now up to a team of scientists to create their own monster to fight the beast.

Now, usually a third part to a trilogy is a let-down. Just look at Alien 3, Jurassic park 3 and more relevantly Jaws 3. However it brings me un-adulterated joy to tell you that this is the highlight of the trilogy. More show-stopping set pieces than ever before, a HAL 9000 style android character and a more interesting plot than the previous parts. Everything that was great about the first two, is even greater in Mechashark.
