Wow, odd bit that Elijah wood is doing TV, especially considering the record SyFy's made-for movies have. Now their weekly series, Being Human, I really enjoy...it's nice to sit back as a DISH customer and employee at the end of the day and watch it it in full HD. This movies sounds interesting though, and I like Elijah Wood in just about everything he's done, so I'll have to keep my eyes open for this one.
