Alien Apocalypse - Why did they even bother?

I've just watched one of the worst acted/written/produced/directed movies ever. It made "Return of the Killer Tomatoes" look like Oscar material. Luckily it was only a made for TV picture on the Sci-Fi channel so exposure should be limited but it was still bad enough that I felt motivated to post on it, and warn those people who may yet still be thinking of buying the DVD.

'Alien Apocalypse' is definitely NOT one of Bruce Campbell's better films, and that's saying a lot. Now let me first say that I will watch anything with Bruce Campbell in it, he's always managed to make campy movies that are hard not to love, but Apocalypse is just sad. It's like they rounded up all the terrible extras from the Xena and Hercules shows, you know the ones who are totally incapable of putting any inflection in their voices, gave them really terrible wigs and gave them their own movie

With the exception of maybe 3 people in the entire film, including Bruce, I'd be surprised if anyone had even been in front of a camera before. It just had the feeling of a really bad grade 6 play.

About the only thing that could have saved this movie is a total recasting or a lot more screen time for Rositza Chernogorova, who, in my humble opinion, is one of the all time greatest actresses (you may know her from her previous role as Sherry, in that other great feature film "Shark Attack 3: Megalodon" which I may still have the DVD for around here somewhere).
