Syfy has several holiday-themed events in the works for the month of December, and today we have the first word on the network’s upcoming Original Movie Christmas Icetastrophe plus when they’ll be kicking off their annual “The Twilight Zone” marathon.
From the Press Release:
Syfy will celebrate the holiday season with the Original Movie Christmas Icetastrophe, a Christmas Day disaster film marathon, and the 20th annual New Year’s Eve celebration of Rod Serling’s legendary series “The Twilight Zone,” which will take viewers into a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.
In Christmas Icetastrophe, premiering Saturday, December 20th, at 9PM (ET/PT), an asteroid strikes a small town preparing for Christmas, triggering an explosive wave of ice crystals that threatens to freeze all life on Earth. The movie stars Victor Webster (“Continuum”), Jennifer Spence (“Stargate Universe”), and Richard Harmon (“Bates Motel”).
The holiday programming festival heats up on Christmas, December 25th, with a full day of cold weather-themed movies, including Abominable Snowman, Ice Twisters, ’12 Disasters of Christmas, and Snowmageddon. Check your local listings for the full schedule and more details.
Syfy will close out 2014 with “The Twilight Zone” marathon, which runs Wednesday, December 31st, from 8AM until 5AM, concluding Thursday, January 1st, from 6AM to 6AM. Among the iconic episodes airing during this year’s marathon will be “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” “To Serve Man,” “Time Enough at Last,” and “Eye of the Beholder.” Syfy first began transporting viewers into that middle ground between science and superstition on December 31, 1995.
