SYFY.COM CELEBRATES 200TH SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIE WITH LAUNCH OF "MARCH MONSTER MADNESS," THE ULTIMATE CREATURE FEATURE TOURNAMENT

NEW YORK - March 24, 2011 - To mark the 200th Syfy Saturday Original Movie (Scream of the Banshee premiering March 26 at 9PM), Syfy.com is launching a new ongoing feature March Monster Madness, the ultimate tournament to determine the king of all Syfy monsters.

Beginning March 24, thirty-two fun and frantic abominations, ranging from Mansquito to Sharktopus, Mega Shark to Gatoroid, and Rock Monster to Basilisk, will square off, with users voting to determine the winner of each round and, ultimately, the champion of the Syfy creature pantheon. Fans will be able to see custom trading cards featuring their favorite monsters, watch highlight videos of the monsters' best attacks, and share their votes with friends across social media platforms.

In Scream of the Banshee, when a college professor opens a mysterious and ornate box discovered hidden in the tunnels under her university, she and her students hear the horrifying scream of a bloodthirsty Banshee. Everyone who hears the scream is fated to die a strange and terrible death. Now the professor, her daughter and a few of her students must try to stop the Banshee. A production of After Dark Films, Scream of the Banshee stars Lauren Holly (NCIS) and Lance Henriksen (Aliens).
