With “Heroes” history, that means cast members are going to be looking for work. The good news for anyone who has ever appeared on a popular genre program is that you can always count on getting work in a Syfy original movie. Next year former flying hero Adrian Pasdar will have to deal with a more earthbound horror when he enters Syfy’s Garden of Evil.
So what terror awaits Pasdar in this garden of evil? It’s actually an ecological disaster flick, but the disaster is being caused by monstrous plants unleashed from ancient times.
Militant environmentalists Kate and Joe witness, and videotape, the rapid growth of a gigantic root system that literally begins mowing through the country like an earthquake. At the same time, government agent Jack Taylor contacts plant expert Jocelyn Snow, who discovers that her ex-colleague, Frame Marcos, is the probable source of the ancient seed that started the whole ecological disaster. Under the growing threat of massive tsunamis should the enormous root system burrow under the ocean, Jack, Jocelyn, Joe and Kate confront Frame in his compound, then return to the place where it all began, with the hopes that Jocelyn can disable the embryonic root and bring the disaster to an end.
Exactly which role Pasdar has in this Syfy original from writer-director Paul Ziller (Loch Ness Terror, Stonehenge Apocalypse) is unclear. Given how regal Pasdar looks in a business suit, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess he’ll be playing the government agent.
Luisa D’Oliveira (Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief) and Daniel Bacon (Toxic Skies) co-star.
Look for these seeds of destruction to be unleashed in 2011 when Garden of Evil premieres on Syfy next year.
