Attack of the Meth Gator Movie Teased by The Asylum
Cocaine Bear may have kickstarted the newest craze in horror.
The Asylum is teasing a Cocaine Bear-inspired film about an alligator fueled by meth. As the attention surrounding the release of Cocaine Bear has been immense, The Asylum took to Twitter to unveil a poster for a film they’re calling Attack of the Meth Gator. No other information has been revealed, and horror fans are still trying to determine if the poster is a joke or indeed intended to promote an upcoming movie from the film company. Subsequent tweets from The Asylum aren’t making things much more clear, either.
“Hold our bear… I mean, beer. Coming for your life this summer,” reads the original tweet, including the Attack of the Meth Gator poster.
In response to one person questioning if the movie is real or not, The Asylum responded, “This is real! We’re pumping the meth into Floridas fresh water reserves as we speak!”
Using the hashtag #weonlymakedocumentaries, another follow-up tweet added, “This is photo from the film set yesterday. It’s real. This is all real. It’s always been real.”
The tweets are clearly being comical, but it woudn’t be a surprise to see The Asylum move forward with something like Attack of the Meth Gator. The indie film company specializes in producing mockbusters that are clearly parodies of more mainstream films. Last year, The Asylum debuted their first mockbuster that screened in movie theaters with the arrival of the Top Gun: Maverick-inspired film Top Gunner: Danger Zone. Some of their other recent titles include Thor: God of Thunder, Battle for Pandora, and Jurassic Domination – see if you can guess which films those ones are inspired by.
Animals on Drugs: Horror’s Newest Craze?
Something like Cocaine Bear would obviously catch the attention of The Asylum. We’ve got to wonder if the early success of Cocaine Bear will similarly have other filmmakers thinking about what else they can do with hard drugs and wild animals. Cocaine Bear writer Jimmy Warden recently told us in an exclusive interview that he’s seen all kinds of wild suggestions already coming up on the internet, and the sky is the limit for Cocaine Bear-like films.
“It feels like we’ll have every animal in existence do cocaine until we come full circle and just make movies about humans doing it again,” Warden said. “Then we’ll move on to MDMA and ayahuasca, etc. There’s no limit.”
We’ll have to wait and see if Attack of the Meth Gator ends up coming to fruition at The Asylum, but there won’t be a wait to watch Cocaine Bear if you can get to the theater, as the movie is now playing.
