Are the Asylum's mockbuster movies made in tribute to the films they mock or just to make campy fun of them? Either way, these flicks -- Snakes on a Train, Transmorphers, The 18-Year-Old Virgin and more -- have inspired cult followings, and it's no surprise that the posters hyping them qualify as collector's items for a certain sector of film nerds.

Do you fall into that category? The Snakes on a Train / Films of The Asylum Limited Edition Poster Show, hosted by the Octopoda Art Blog, will feature a slew of limited-edition Asylum posters at Studio 12 Gallery.
The show opens tomorrow and runs through April 27; the celebration wraps up on April 28 with a closing reception and screening of Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus at 7 p.m. at the Bug Theatre. Admission will be free for those who've purchased a poster and $3 for everyone else ($5 couple). See the Facebook event page for details about both the show and the closing event.
Here's a sneak peek of the posters; artwork is also available right now at Octopoda's online store.
