At some point, while I wasn't paying attention, these went from laughingstock to pop culture phenomenon.
You gotta hand it to Syfy. They've been making these awful, low-budget science fiction movies starring washed up actors and actresses for years now, and everyone pretty much considered them entirely stupid. They kept at it, though, and they've managed to turn it around, achieving some kind of bastard hybrid of "so bad it's good" and "hipster ironic cool." It's got everyone talking about Syfy's movies, and people tacking -nado onto the end of every word like it's the most hilarious reference in the world.
It may sound like I'm trashing these movies, but what I'm saying is the opposite. Syfy has created their own entire genre here, and they've built a rabid fanbase despite every piece of wisdom the human race has learned since the dawn of civilization screaming that they should fail. It's incredible, when you think about it, and they deserve our respect.
With that in mind, here's a sneak peak of Robocroc, a movie about a fucking giant robot crocodile, which will have more viewers in one night than The Outhouse has readers in a year. And you know what? Fair enough, Syfy. Fair enough.
Robocroc premieres Thursday, Sept. 14 at 9/8c.
Top secret nanotechnology transforms a zoo's crocodile into a massive, deadly Robocroc that wreaks bloody havoc on an adjacent water park!
