Entertainment Weekly had a pretty good article
about this a few months ago.
From the last paragraph:
The irony is, the more successful the Asylum has become — and the free publicity it's received from this recent spate of lawsuits hasn't hurt — the more it has opened itself up to be imitated. ''We're seeing competition with these outrageous movies like Sharktopus and Robo Croc,'' says Bales. ''Those are Asylum-type movies, but we didn't make them.'' Not that the company's complaining. ''It's an honor,'' Rimawi says, ''to be mockbusted.''
