Not to Be Outdone, The Asylum Releases Their Own Version of Sherlock Holmes

No Comments

The people working diligently behind-the-scenes at The Asylum, the infamous production company known for their low-budget adaptations of big-budget theatrical films, have been pretty busy over the past few months. If the promise of “Mega Piranha” wasn’t enough, apparently the “studio” is set to release their own version of Sherlock Holmes, albeit with a lot more robots, dinosaurs, and Playstation-era special effects than Guy Ritchie’s version. Naturally, I’m curious, though I’m starting to believe that the trailer embedded below has caused something to rise in the back of my throat. Maybe it was all that risotto I greedily consumed earlier tonight. Yeah, that’s it. The risotto.

You can bring The Asylum’s staggering interpretation of “Sherlock Holmes” into your spacious abode on January 26th, though I’m not sure why anyone would.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)
