Sci-Fi Originals Coming to the Small Screen in 2005


The Sci Fi Channel is widely renowned for the unique brand of original motion pictures it produces-masterpieces in both script, direction, and visuals.

Okay, so, that's not it at all, but Sci Fi is great for satisfying your corny B-movie craving, and by the looks of their recently announced 2006 lineup of Sci Fi originals, next year will continue their tradition of showing you the most abhorrent-yet-loveable movies since the days of Ed Wood! Here's the list:

* Fire Alien, a tongue-in-cheek film about a fire-breathing alien, produced by William Shatner.

* Gryphon, an epic fantasy about a prince and princess from opposing sides of two warring kingdoms who must join forces to defeat a mystical gryphon conjured by an evil wizard.

* Heat Stroke, an action-adventure from Farscape executive producer David Kemper about an alien invasion which leads to massive global warming.

* Citadel, starring Corin Nemic as a member of an elite corps of American soldiers who must destroy a creature unleashed on Europe by the Nazis after D-Day.

* Black Hole Terror (working title), a thriller from director Tibor Takacs (Mansquito) about a failed experiment which threatens to swallow the entire Midwest. Kristy Swanson and Judd Nelson star.

* Squid/Tentacles (working title), a creature feature starring a giant squid which attacks the crew of a treasure-hunting expedition.

* Magma, a disaster film about a volcanic eruption, starring 24's Xander Berkley and Reiko Aylesworth along with Amy Jo Johnson (Felicity).

Personally, my favorite title out of all the aforementioned is Fire Alien. Not that Squid/Tentacles or Black Hole Terror aren't creative, but Fire Alien…it's the Taco Bell of movie titles.

Obviously you have no idea just how much I love Taco Bell.

We should probably be minding

We should probably be minding our own business as we get to remember anything that would have been what could also be for our own sake as well. - Marla Ahlgrimm
