Source: Syfy schedulebot [NOTE: Syfy schedule subject to change(s)]




09:30 AM Daybreakers

The vampire genre is given a novel approach with lackluster results in this noir-ish horror film from the Australian filmmaking team of Michael and Peter Spierig. Existing in the near future, the picture hypothesizes a vampiric takeover of the Earth wherein the fanged population continues to go about their lives while humankind is drained of blood in order to keep the masses alive. The film’s most delectable bits come when the vamps go through withdrawal and transform into blood-thirsty monsters, hungry for sustenance from wherever they can get it -- including themselves.

Cast includes Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill, Claudia Karvan, Michael Dorman, Isabel Lucas and Vince Colosimo.


11:30 AM Stake Land

After vampires overtake America, orphaned teen Martin (Connor Paolo) and survivalist Mister (Nick Damici) find themselves locked in a battle against a dangerous religious cult lead by the diabolical Jebedia Loven (Michael Cerveris). Later, Martin and Mister are joined by a group of weary travelers trying to find a sanctuary known as New Eden.

Cast includes Nick Damici, Connor Paolo, Sean Nelson, Fringe's Michael Cerveris, Bonnie Dennison, Chance Kelly, Tim House, Larry Fessenden and Kelly McGillis.


01:30 PM The Mist

Stephen King's apocalyptic chiller about a group of people who are trapped in a grocery store by a strange mist that unleashes an army of deadly creatures.

Cast includes Thomas Jane, Marcia Gay Harden, Laurie Holden, Andre Braugher, Toby Jones, William Sadler and Being Human's Sam Witwer.
