JOHN RHYS-DAVIES (LORD OF THE RINGS), JOE FLANIGAN (STARGATE: ATLANTIS) AND STEPHEN REA (V IS FOR VENDETTA) STAR IN APRIL SYFY SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIES

NEW YORK - March 29, 2011 - John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings, Star Trek: Voyager) and Joe Flanigan (Stargate: Atlantis, Warehouse 13) tackle creatures from another dimension, while Stephen Rea (V is for Vendetta, The Crying Game) confronts a deadly giant bird in the April Syfy Saturday Original Movie presentations.

In Ferocious Planet, premiering Saturday, April 9, at 9PM (ET/PT), an experimental device designed to view alternate universes malfunctions on its first demonstration, transporting a group of observers into a nightmarish new dimension. The team must use ingenuity and courage to outwit the bloodthirsty creatures of this bizarre world, while trying to repair the damaged machine and return home. Ferocious Planet stars John Rhys-Davies and Joe Flanigan.

Road Kill, premiering Saturday, April 23, at 9PM (ET/PT), features a group of friends on a scenic RV road trip through Ireland, whose cross-country adventure takes an unexpected turn when they accidentally run down an old gypsy woman. Before she dies, the woman curses them, summoning a giant bird of prey called a Simuroc to exterminate the young people, one by one. Road Kill stars Stephen Rea and Roisin Murphy (Johnny English, Grey's Anatomy).

Both Ferocious Planet and Road Kill are productions of Parallel Films in association with MNG Films and distributed by RHI Entertainment.
