MORE THRILLING SATURDAY NIGHTS ON SCI FI

28 Original Movies Planned for 2006

New York, NY (April 13, 2005) - SCI FI is about to see even more action on Saturday nights. The Channel will supercharge Saturdays in 2006 with an unprecedented 28 original action movies - up from 2005's slate of 23.

Viewers can't get enough of these cost-effective, high-octane movies that have been averaging over 2 million viewers every Saturday night. SCI FI's March 26 premiere of 'Alien Apocalypse,' starring Bruce Campbell, was the Channel's highest-rated Saturday actioner to date, delivering over 2.7 million viewers. Campbell's next SCI FI project, 'Man with the Screaming Brain,' will premiere in September.

SCI FI's Saturday movie franchise is the Channel's homage to the drive-in, a re-imagination of cinema's earliest sci-fi treats. Like the classic sci-fi fare of yore, the non-stop thrill rides offer honest-to-goodness escapist fun while simultaneously challenging the imagination.

In just one of next year's offerings, William Shatner brings his own brand of tongue-in-cheek charm to the fire-breathing alien flick, 'Fire Alien.' Other new projects for 2006 include:

'GRYPHON'
In this epic fantasy, a prince and princess from opposing sides of two warring kingdoms must join forces to defeat a mystical gryphon that was conjured by an evil wizard bent on bringing both their lands under his sinister control.

'HEAT STROKE'
Aliens are among us. And they have been making themselves at home by turning up the heat, resulting in massive global warming. Now, only one soldier stands in the way of complete global meltdown. SCI FI re-partners with Farscape executive producer David Kemper for this action adventure.

'CITADEL'
In a last ditch effort after D-Day, the Nazis unleash a killer beast in the mountains of Europe. It's up an elite corps of American soldiers to head into the remote area and destroy the creature before it kills its way through the continent. Corin Nemec stars.

'BLACK HOLE TERROR' (Working Title)
When a particle collider experiment goes wrong, a black hole forms. Growing steadily, it soon threatens to swallow the entire Midwest. Compounding matters, an energy creature emerges from the hole, interfering with scientists' efforts to seal the rip in the fabric of space and time. Directed by Tibor Tak?cs, the film stars Kristy Swanson and Judd Nelson.

'SQUID/TENTACLES' (Working Title)
Thirty years ago, Ray Reiter watched in horror as a giant squid attacked and killed his parents. The creature escaped, but not before young Ray destroyed one of its eyes. When the one-eyed beast re-emerges, attacking a crew of a treasure hunting expedition, Ray joins the team, in hopes of exacting his revenge.

'MAGMA'
Things get hot, hot, hot when a covert government drilling project goes horribly wrong, causing the Earth's core to overheat. Xander Berkley (24), Reiko Aylesworth (24) and Amy Jo Johnson (Felicity) star in this volcano disaster film.
