Get your red-hot, limited-edition mockbuster posters from the Asylum at Studio 12 Gallery

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.
