New Release: Mega-Python vs. Gatoroid Blu-ray and DVD

Mega-Python Vs. Gatoroid movie scene

Mutant monsters go at it in SyFy's Mega-Python Vs. Gatoroid.

Monster movie Mega-Python vs. Gatoroid arrived on Blu-ray and DVD on June 21, 2011, from Image Entertainment.

The wildly buzzed-about SyFy original movie starring 1980s teen pop queens Tiffany and Debbie Gibson premiered in January 2011. Cheesy and self-parodying, the TV movie features a battle between two monstrous mutant breeds and an extended, whipped-cream-covered catfight between the two one-time pop sensations.

The film stars Gibson as doctor and activist Nikki Riley, who accidentally unleashes a python into the Everglades, while rival doctor Terry O’Hara (Tiffany) is tasked with finding an expert reptile hunter. After her boyfriend dies in the process, she resorts to extreme measures to create genetically enlarged gators to stop the slithering menace. Soon the swamp is a huge, scaly battleground between colossal gators and pythons — with a charity ball of potential human snacks in their path.

Directed by Mary Lambert (a veteran music video director whose clips include Madonna’s “Like a Virgin,” “Material Girl,” “La Isla Bonita” and “Like a Prayer”), Mega Python vs. Gatoroid received a red-carpet premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York, reportedly the first such opening in the history of SyFy’s movies. There’s no denying that it was the most buzzed about TV movie of the year.

The Blu-ray and DVD carry the list prices of $29.97 and $27.97, respectively.

Here’s the trailer for the monster movie:
