The Most Ridiculous Hollywood Rip-Offs Of All Time (PICTURES)

First Posted: 06/06/10 01:08 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 05:40 PM ET

It happens all the time. You go to rent the classic Michael Bay character piece, "Transformers," and you accidentally come home with a rip-off titled "Transmorphers." It's a sad, yet common, tale.

This gem, among many others, comes courtesy of a production company called The Asylum, which specializes in making low budget knockoffs of major Hollywood pictures. They make no effort to disguise how clearly they're ripping off the originals to the point where they actually have their own charm. We went through their catalog and picked out the most ridiculous of the bunch. And to be honest, some look more enticing than their inspiration.
