Video Footage Documents a Trio of Space Storm Flicks are Destroying Syfy



Post Thumb:


Syfy must really be hoping that viewers have 2012 disaster fever because by the end of May a good 75% of their original movies for the year will have been disaster flicks, and that will continue with three space age disasters premiering over the next six weeks: Seattle Superstorm, Alien Tornado, and Space Twister.

Syfy sent out the following press release officially announcing the April premieres of Alien Tornado and Space Twister:

Alien Tornado, premiering Saturday, April 14 at 9PM (ET/PT), stars Jeff Fahey (Machete) and Kari Wuhrer (Sliders). In the movie aliens attack Earth, using deadly electrical tornadoes as weapons. A farmer, his brilliant high school daughter, and a tornado blogger race against the clock to find a way to thwart the horrific invasion. Alien Tornado is a production of Active Entertainment.

Erica Cerra, star of Syfy’s hit series “Eureka”, plays the mother of a teenage genius in Space Twister, premiering Saturday, April 28 at 9PM. Other-worldly storms — similar to the ones comprising the eye of Jupiter — begin destroying the planet, disintegrating everything they touch. A high school student’s science project becomes the mysterious key to ending the catastrophic storms and saving civilization. A production of Cinetel, Space Twister co-stars Mitch Pileggi (“The X-Files”).

Space Twister was originally entitled Super Storm, but that was almost certainly changed because Syfy is already premiering a sci-fi disaster flick this very weekend entitled Seattle Superstorm. There’s clearly only room for one Super Storm on the schedule.

In Seattle Superstorm a UFO crashes into the Puget Sound, somehow touching off catastrophic weather, and only Esai Morales (“Caprica”) and Ona Grauer (House of the Dead) can save the city. It premieres Saturday night, March 31 at 9/8 Central.

Syfy has posted two clips from Seattle Superstorm in which extras first run for cover from lightning strikes and a tornado that takes down the Space Needle, and then more extras and Esai Morales run for cover from fireballs falling from the sky.

Syfy has also posted two clips from Space Twister in which you’ll see characters trying to survive not getting electrocuted or burned alive. What you won’t see: a space twister. Booooooo!

For some reason Syfy has not posted any clips from Alien Tornado, possibly because they’re afraid that the sight of blue energy tornadoes is neater looking than anything in the other four clips. I did find the international trailer for Alien Tornado (under the even more uber-generic alternate title Tornado Warning) online so you can see for yourself.

For those of you like myself that much prefer Syfy movies with monsters and killer animals, I’m afraid we’ll all have to wait until June, when the network goes all-out premiering a new one each Saturday night during the month: Roger Corman’s Piranhaconda, Jersey Shore Shark Attack, The Asylum’s Bigfoot, and Arachnoquake.

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating



Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations



The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
