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




09:00 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.

Dawn of the Dead2

11:00 AM Dawn Of The Dead

A nurse, a policeman, a young married couple, a salesman, and other survivors of a worldwide plague that is producing aggressive, flesh-eating zombies, take refuge in a mega Midwestern shopping mall.

Cast includes Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames, Jake Weber, Mekhi Phifer, Ty Burrell, Michael Kelly, Kevin Zegers and Motive's Louis Ferreira.


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.


04:00 PM Underworld: Evolution

Gory sequel finds the bloodsucking heroine (Kate Beckinsale) tracing the origins of the ancient feud between the tribes of vampires and werewolves.

Cast includes Kate Beckinsale, Defiance's Tony Curran, Derek Jacobi, Bill Nighy, Michael Sheen and Sophia Myles.

Underworld Lycans

06:00 PM Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans

A prequel to the first two Underworld films, this fantasy explains the origins of the feud between the Vampires and the Lycans. Aided by his secret love, Sonja (Rhona Mitra), courageous Lucian (Michael Sheen) leads the Lycans in battle against brutal Vampire king Viktor (Bill Nighy). Determined to break the king's enslavement of his people, Lucian faces off against the Death Dealer army in a bid for Lycan independence.
