As I started putting this list together it occurred to me, "Holy crap, there is a lot of good TV this summer."

SciFi cuts a deal for ten movies

Bruce Campbell, Renee O'Connor - Alien ApocalypseIf you are a fan of the SciFi channel, the phrase, "SciFi Original Movie" probably gives you a bit of a cringe. Premiering a new movie on Saturday night has become a fairly regular thing for the network, but the quality of those movies is all over the map. More often than not they are cheesy, campy if you prefer, B-Movie horror pictures. But the one saving grace they have is great casting. Case in point: Alien Apocalypse. How can you pass up anything starring Bruce Campbell and Renee O'Connor? It's enough to get me to watch. The same reasoning led me to watch Mansquito (Corin Nemec), Out For Blood (Vanessa Angel, Jody Lyn O'Keefe, and Lance Henriksen), and the recent Kraken:Tentacles of the Deep (Victoria Pratt), among many others.

The good news, if you like these kind of movies, is that SciFi has just signed a deal with RHI Entertainment for ten more movies. If you are wondering how they are going to compare to past SciFi originals, take a look at these titles. Grizzly Rage, Maneater, Eye Of The Beast, Blood Monkey, and In The Spider's Web. Blood Monkey! Awesome! The tradition continues. And, yes, this Saturday I'll be watching Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes. It stars Lance Henriksen and Doug Bradley. Ya gotta like that.
