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

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.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez

Published

on

One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!

Andrew and Sara are happily married and plan on spending some quality time together, but something sinister has other plans for their evening. Carol’s Christmas Eve turns into a fight for survival when a vengeful stranger isn’t feeling the holiday spirit.
