The Asylum

The Asylum is a production company that specializes in low-budget films that are often ripoffs of mainstream Hollywood feature films. Their technique of using themes and names that are sometimes just a few characters different from the real titles has gained them success in direct-to-video and bargain-bin film production. They consistently see profits from every film produced.

The Asylum was founded by former Hollywood executives, and is famous for producing movies like Alien Convergence (which came out around the same time as Alien: Covenant), AVH: Alien vs. Hunter (which came out around Alien vs. Predator) and the famous Sharknado franchise and other sharksploitation films.

They typically spend under $1 million on production costs per film, and break even in 2-3 months.
