It comes as no surprise that the trailer for RHI Entertainment’s Roadkill would quickly pop up online once Syfy announced the Stephen Rea-starring monster movie’s April 23rd premiere date. More surprising is that this Syfy movie about hit & run, gypsy curses, and a giant bird of prey doesn’t look too shabby.
Kate and her brother, Joel, have gathered their five best friends for a scenic RV road trip to their high school reunion. But their cross-country adventure is about to take an unexpected turn for the worst when an ancient curse takes wing by way of a massive creature. It’s called the Simuroc, and this gigantic bird of prey has found the perfect, helpless quarry in Kate and company. Stranded in the backwoods of the predator’s territory, there’s little chance for escape.
I really don’t think the title Roadkill suits a movie with a premise like that. Still probably a better title than my idea of calling it Squawk Me to Hell.
Eliza Bennet (Inkheart, Nanny McPhee), Kacey Barnfield (Resident Evil: Afterlife, Lake Placid 3), and Stephen Rea (V for Vendetta, Citizen X, and Oscar nominated Best Actor for The Crying Game) star in this creature feature from director Johannes Roberts (When Evil Calls, Forest of the Damned) and writer Rick Suvalle (“V.I.P.”). Roadkill premieres on Syfy Saturday, April 23rd, at 9/8 Central with the usual midnight repeat.
RHI has posted the Roadkill trailer, and I must say this looks much better than expected. It also for some reason leaves me really wanting to see a big budget Hollywood remake of The Giant Claw.
