Low-budget monster movie studio The Asylum, the gonzo team behind SyFy's outrageous Sharknado as well as other insane sea-monster extravaganzas like Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus, is offering fans a chance to get slaughtered in the next installment in the ongoing Mega Shark saga. The studio has launched a contest to find a fresh victim for the upcoming Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark, in the form of one seriously dedicated fan... and there's a lot of them out there.
 
Participants will need to submit “photographic or video evidence” explaining why they're the perfect choice for an onscreen kill. Submissions can feature “body art, painting, sculpture, music, original stage productions, recorded songs, extravagant theme parties, shark-shaped shrubbery... and every other kind of fan tribute imaginable.” The Asylum staff will pick the winner, who will be brought to L.A. (yes, the proudly micro-budgeted studio will actually cover the flight and hotel) for a walk-on role in the film and a gory onscreen death. They haven't revealed yet whether the winner will be decimated by the Mega or Mecha Shark. Hell, maybe both.
