Double Dare Preview: “Versus” Movies.
After struggling through Mega Shark Vs Mecha Shark, we decide to scour the bargain bin for other movies with “Versus” in the title.
For September’s Double Dare feature, we decided to get combative. Last week’s bomb, The Predator, had us looking back at some of the lesser lights in the franchise, notably the Alien Vs Predator spin-offs. Having barely survived Mega Shark Vs Mecha Shark, it seemed like the course was clear: try to find a so-bad-it’s-good flick with “Versus” in the title. Creature features, monster mashes, and ill-advised cross overs populate our list this month.
From a list of a dozen unworthy contenders, Erik and Neil whittled down 5 likely candidates. Basic rule was that we wanted theatrical releases only; no more paddling around with crap like Sharktopus or Mega Shark. We also decided against classic movies we might actually enjoy like Dracula Vs Frankenstein or Godzilla Vs King Kong. It’s double dare, after all, not a trip down Monster-Vision memory lane.
With our picks made, now it’s the audience’s turn to judge which of these pugilists make it to the final round.
