I kind of figured that mockbuster wizards The Asylum would have a low-budget, direct-to-video response to “Fast Five”, but for some reason, I never really thought to properly and thoroughly investigate my suspicions. Below you’ll find a trailer for “200 MPH”, which quietly landed on DVD and VOD on April 26th, 2011. Directed by Cole McKay and starring David Michael Latt, David Rimawi, and Paul Bales, the film follows a young racer as he is “plunged into the harrowing world of illegal street racing, risking his life as he races with a vengeance”. Sounds like a paint-by-numbers winner to me. The kicker: the screenwriter’s name is Thunder Levin. How could you possibly go wrong?
