It's really hard to tell who's better at making awesomely terrible movies – SyFy or The Asylum. Even the most exacting scientific standards have failed to discern a winner; after all, how does one quantify the level of excellence in a film like 'Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus' when compared to 'Sharktopus?' Trying to resolve such a complex question makes quantum physics look like an episode of 'Sesame Street.' Our best scientific minds have thrown their hands up in defeat when faced with such a complex conundrum. Fortunately, we may not have to wonder anymore – because as these new pictures from 'Mega Python vs. Gatoroid' prove, the power of SyFy and The Asylum combined makes the whole question moot.
It's the battle to end all battles in this film – not the snake versus the alligator-esque monster, but the showdown between stars Debbi Gibson and Tiffany. That's right, we're finally going to see the fight to the death pre-teen girls clamored for in the 1980s – the giant CGI monsters are just an undercard match to set the stage for the main event featuring two titans to teenybop pop music squaring off for supremacy (or irrelevancy) once and for all. Each brawler brings her previous Asylum film experience to the fight – Gibson from her work in 'Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus,' Tiffany from 'Mega Piranha.' Who will win and what will be left of them? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, SyFy and The Asylum have released some new stills from this mega movie event. One of our favorites, which features the Mega Python of the title menacing a dog, is pictured on the front page. It's hilarious how the dog has a gigantic CGI snake right in front of him, yet has a look of complete apathy on his face. When your canine stars are this disinterested in the film they're making, it can't be a good sign.
The second photo we love is the culmination of every teenage boy's fantasies in 1987: Tiffany and Debbie Gibson squaring off in a food fight at a wedding, complete with Gibson in a very short dress straddling Tiffany, who's allowing everyone to look down her low cut top. Sure, it's 20 years too late, but the only way this could be more awesome is if Jami Gertz sauntered in from the set of 'The Lost Boys' wearing a miniskirt and started making out with Samantha Fox...or maybe not.
If these pics weren't fantastic enough, wait 'til you hear what else these guys have in store for one lucky fan. SyFy will be holding a swanky red carpet premiere (and when we say swanky, we mean the champagne will be served in real glasses and not those giant red cups they hand out at a "$5 all you can drink" kegger party) and you – and a guest – could be there. Point your browser to the official SyFy 'Mega Python' page and enter for a chance to win a trip to New York, tickets to the premiere, and an invite to the after party where maybe you can convince Gibson and Tiffany to recreate their erotic fight scene for you in private. Just remember, if you win we expect pictures.
'Mega Python vs. Gatoroid' debuts on SyFy on January 29th at 9PM EST. We'd ask if you'll be watching, but the answer seems obvious...
