This Saturday night’s Syfy original movie Morlocks puts a new spin on the subterranean subhumanoids from the dark future of H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine, and we have a few clips to share from the film. Even after watching these snippets, I’m still not sure what exactly they are, but they certainly don’t look like the albino apemen we’re accustomed to.
“Stargate: Atlantis” co-star David Hewlett, last seen as the douchebag neighbor in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, has to contend with an uprising of future mutants after an experimental time machine opens a window in the future, allowing the mutated Morlocks into our world to wreak havoc.
Christina Cole (“Chaos”) and Robert Picardo (47% of all Syfy original movies) also star in this UFO Films production directed by Matt Codd (Super Eruption).
Morlocks premieres this Saturday night on Syfy at 9/8 Central.
The first clip is the 30-second TV spot. The second clip appears to show that there were more than just Morlocks that came back from the future; I assume whatever that mutant dino ostrich looking thing is came through the time window as well. The third clip left me genuinely confused as to whether the Morlocks are supposed to be coming or going.
