Any movie that proudly sports the words “Mega Python” and “Gatoroid” in its title automatically gets a few extra cool points in my book. The upcoming SyFy farce “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid” has been on my cinematic radar for a while now, thanks in part to last year’s viral video that featured co-stars Tiffany and Debbie Gibson going toe-to-toe in what has to be one of the cheesiest fight scenes ever filmed for television. It’s hard to believe that “Pet Sematary” director Mary Lambert is behind this nonsense, especially considering the aforementioned Stephen King adaptation still gives me the willies. “Gatoroid”, on the other hand, looks simply ridiculous, and promises to be one hell of a time. Assuming, of course, that you have nothing better to do on a Saturday night.
“Mega Python vs. Gatoroid” airs January 29th at 9pm on SyFy.
