Syfy Aware Of Its Own Ridiculousness

Illustration for article titled Syfy Aware Of Its Own Ridiculousness

We may make with the snark about Syfy's Original Movies around here, but if Syfy SVP of Digital Craig Engler's Twitter is anything to go by, we're not the only ones. Or even the funnier ones. Dammit.


On Thursday, Engler admitted a sad truth:

As far as I can tell no movie title we ever come up with will ever get as much attention as Mansquito. People bring it up all the time.


But instead of feeling sad about that, it seems as if the network looks upon it as an opportunity:

The joke title we always talk about wanting to make is Sharktopus (half shark, half octopus!). It's more fun to say outloud than to read.

Or should that be franchise?:

We've also joked about the Mansquito sequel, Womansquito. Quite the laugh riot over here, no? I personally want to see Rhinosaur...


Amazingly, Matthew Ross comes up with an angle that gets our attention:

Womansquito? Why not just call it Ms. Quito? Perhaps you could work in a feminist twist ...


I can't believe I'm saying this, but I would totally watch Ms. Quito.

Ms. Quito is the best name for a film ever. They can't not make it. I'll offer to do it how about that?!

I met this guy at Comic Con and he was super nice and we talked briefly about how awesomely awful some of their films are. I was so glad to see that he loves them as much as I do.
