Is there a better month of the year for monster movies than October? Of course not! Which is probably why Syfy is premiering two primo wolf-based Saturday night screamers: Red: Werewolf Hunter [starring Felicia Day, pictured above, in action] and Monsterwolf. Monsterwolf premieres on October 9th and Red: Werewolf Hunter debuts on October 30th – the night before Hallowe’en.
Details follow the jump.
SYFY HOWLS IN OCTOBER WITH SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIES RED: WEREWOLF HUNTER (FELICIA DAY) AND MONSTERWOLF (ROBERT PICARDO)
NEW YORK – September 16, 2010 – Syfy will provide a howling good time in October with two wolfish Saturday Original Movies featuring a family of werewolf hunters and an ancient vengeful creature.
In Monsterwolf, premiering Saturday, October 9, at 9PM (ET/PT), an oil company defies a court injunction against drilling on tribal land. Their blasting releases the Kachinawaya, a Native American animal spirit meant to protect Indian lands from invaders. Monsterwolf stars Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager) and Jason London (Wildfire). A production of Active Entertainment.
Felicia Day, star of The Guild and Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, who also played “Vi” in the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will portray a descendant of Little Red Riding Hood in Red: Werewolf Hunter, debuting Saturday, October 30, at 9PM (ET/PT).
Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business — hunting werewolves. He’s skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him. Red: Werewolf Hunter also stars Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen). Red: Werewolf Hunter is produced by Angela Mancuso and Vesuvius Productions in association with Chesler Perlmutter Productions.
