Universal to Bring SyFy Films to Theaters

Sy Fy

Deadline brings first word that Syfy Ventures and Universal Studios have joined forces to create Syfy Films – a new imprint that will craft various genre films and then distribute them theatrically under Universal’s banner.

The goal of the deal is to “leverage Syfy’s genre expertise in science fiction, fantasy, supernatural and horror,” which must sound at least a little odd to anyone who’s sat through one of their original productions on a lonely Saturday night. If it all goes according to plan, the new Syfy Films will be releasing two “moderately budgeted” features per year starting in 2012.

Half Moon DVD news

Breaking Glass Pictures has announced that director Jason Toler’s supernatural horror film “Half Moon” will arrive on DVD March 1. The film features adult film sensation Tori Black as a hard-bitten prostitute whose latest trick turns out to be a werewolf in disguise. Rose is a down-on-her-luck prostitute who’s short on cash. When she hears of a mysterious client named Jacob who pays a large sum of money for one night in a hotel, she goes against her better judgment and takes the assignment. At the hotel, Jacob proves to be a strange client: he’s willing to pay up front, and is more interested in honest conversation than anything else. Then, just as Rose begins to feel at ease, she learns that Jacob is about to undergo a transformation by the light of the full moon – and she’s about find herself trapped in close quarters with a terrifying monster. This taut and clever supernatural horror film breaks genre conventions by building realistic characters and erotic tension as it cranks up the suspense. Featuring Tori Black in a breakout role as Rose, Half Moon will sink its fangs into you and not let you go till its bloody, hair-raising climax. DVD extras for “Half Moon” will include a behind-the-scenes featurette and commentary with director Jason Toler.

Sharktopus DVD news

He was featured in Entertainment Weekly. He was responsible for the highest rated Syfy Channel creature-feature to premiere in September. Whether in print, or the web, merely saying his name out loud inspired terror and fear. Forget Jaws, here comes…SHARKTOPUS! Produced by Roger (2009 Honorary Oscar®-winner) and Julie Corman, Sharktopus makes its DVD and Blu-rayâ„¢ debut on March 15, 2011 from Anchor Bay Entertainment. Starring Oscar®-nominee Eric Roberts (The Expendables, The Dark Knight), Sharktopus has already captivated the nation, as more than 2.5M viewers witnessed last September. SRP is $19.98 for the DVD, and $24.99 for the Blu-rayâ„¢, with pre-book on February 16th. An eight-tentacled nightmare hybrid of shark and octopus, “S-11” was created by genetic scientist Nathan Sands (Roberts) as the U.S. Navy’s next super-weapon. But when its control implants are damaged during a training experiment off the Mexican coast, the beast escapes to Puerto Vallarta to sample the local fare — bikini babes, jet-skiers, and spring-breakers. With the ocean terror now out of control and seemingly invincible, a ragtag group – comprised of a hotshot mercenary, an investigative reporter, and Sand’s biomechanical engineer daughter – have come together to stop the unholy beast from turning a seaside tourist resort into the ultimate human buffet. But it won’t be easy: it possesses problem-solving intelligence, attacks without mercy or warning – it even has the ability to walk on land. Not to mention a decided affinity to snack on bungee jumpers… Kerem Bursin and Sara Malakul Lane co-star, with a hilarious cameo by Corman himself. In addition to capturing the hearts and minds of millions of viewers, Sharktopus gripped critics with its outrageous fusion of horror and humor. Examiner.com called it “Awesome! An apex moment in Syfy’s history,” while Horrornews.net declared the film “full of kickassitude!” Reelz Channel said the film “…has all the blood and bikinis you’ve come to expect from the Roger Corman Film Factory,” and Joe Crowe from RevolutionSF.com noted “Sharktopus finally gets it right. That’s how a creature feature should be done.”
