* TheMockbusterNetworkDecay: If you were to look at their output prior to 2005, you would be shocked to find some legitimate titles in their catalog, including stuff the company wouldn't release today. That's because The Asylum started out as a typical distributor/sales agent of independent films, with an emphasis on horror. Unfortunately, due to increasing competition from the likes of Creator/{{Lionsgate}}, they were left with bottom of the barrel stuff. They decided to make their own original films, but what they were releasing was not popular in the DirectToVideo market and was of dubious quality. Then they made an adaptation of ''Literature/WarOfTheWorlds'', around the same time the Creator/StevenSpielberg version was coming out. With the high number of orders coming from Blockbuster Video, The Asylum realized they could make profits releasing films that were derivative of the big studios' blockbusters. Thus, they became the Mockbuster company we all know and love today.

* WorkingTitle: Several mockbusters actually started off as non-mockbusters - ''Transmorphers'' was originally ''Robot Wars'', ''100,000 B.C.'' was originally ''Prehistoric'' and so on.
