The Eerie Midnight Horror Show (1974)  This is an Italian rip-off of The Exorcist.  I have a couple of other eurohorror exorcist movies as well, but I don't remember their names offhand.  I actually enjoyed watching these movies more than The Exorcist, which I found to be a bit boring compared to its more stylish and cheesy eurohorror counterparts.

BEYOND THE DOOR is lota fun!

Asylum? They certainly especialize in rip-offs.

Apparently it was released in the same month as THE DA VINCI CODE… I mean, can you actually write cast direct and distribute a movie in one month like that? Bit strange. Maybe that’s the real mystery.  Buggedout

Based on absolutely no data whatsoever  Smile I would presume that Asylum wrote and went into production on a film loosely based on the same themes and conspiracy theories as Dan Brown's novel - months (at least) before TDVC was released - and neither knew nor cared what the actual Hanks vehicle would be like onscreen. Most of their rip-offs are released at the same time (or even before!) more famous counterparts, in order to bilk the foolish or careless. When I worked at a multiplex there was a Hollywood Video across the street and I'd check out the new releases every Friday. Whenever we'd open a big picture there'd routinely be an Asylum rip-off on the shelves the same day (or sooner).

Of course, most of them are utter crap. But I enjoyed (somehow) "I am Omega" and "Princess of Mars".

Interesting. maybe there’s industry tip-offs. “Psst… Spielberg’s doing a mutated wallaby flick, get in there while you can!”

There is always Monster Armageddon where Asylum ripped off its own rip-offs.

ABBY  (1974) was a blacksploitation rip of the EXORCIST (1973).
Warner Bros. even sued it to remove it from the screen! And won! I'm lucky enough to have it on an old bootleg VHS.

Oh for sure. We've seen this every once in a while... three body-switch romcoms come out the same year... two or three meteors-threatening-Earth movies in the same summer... etc etc. Even at the big studio level everyone wants to know what's on the end of everyone else's fork.  TeddyR

^^ They blinded us with science in 1985. My favorites are the three teen science comedies from 1985: Real Genius, My Science Project and Weird Science.

Bonus: D.A.R.Y.L. and Explorers.

Yeah, exactly! How does one explain a spate like THAT? It's pure industry triangulation...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
