Ferocious Planet and Sci-fi Thrills: A Movie Review

Director: Billy O'Brien.

Writer: Douglas G. Davis.

When you say the SyFy Network, some people cringe at the words, others laugh and even others look mystified. This is a television channel, which makes the best of low budgets, while offering b-movie fans something off the beaten path. With Ferocious Planet, the SyFy channel seems to have found something interesting, not too well travelled and a mostly fresh take on the parallel world construct. This ninety minute feature debuted on SyFy April 9th and this is a b-movie worthy of your attention.

The early minutes are used to develop some minor sub-plots involving affairs between scientists and military personnel, a disenfranchised senator and a presidential aid with far too much curiousity. Each of these story lines are well acted out, with Joe Flanigan playing the part of the hero. His subordinates (Yare Michael Jegbefume, Chris Newman) also play their roles of confused and terrified serviceman,

Sink Your Canines into this Trailer for Ferocious Planet from Rhi Entertainment

The SyFy Network will take viewers into parallel dimensions with Ferocious Planet April 9th. Here, characters and sci-fi fans will find monsters roaming a heavily forested locale, where few escape sharpened teeth and talons.

Syfy's The Other Side Gets a New Title (Ferocious Planet), a Trailer, and a Release Date!

I'm probably encroaching on Foy territory with this story, but after all his live tweeting last night during the Oscars, I figured he could use a break. Syfy's The Other Side, which we first told you about several months ago, has been given a new name - Ferocious Planet - and a release date of April 9th.

Ferocious Planet was written by Douglas G. Davis (Carny) and stars John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Joe Flanigan ("Stargate: Atlantis"), and Chris Newman ("Love Is the Drug"). Interestingly enough, there's no info on the director ... not exactly what you'd call a good sign. In any event, check out the synopsis and trailer below, and look for more soon.

Synopsis:

It was a groundbreaking device designed by a brilliant physicist to glimpse alternate universes. But the machine malfunctioned on its first presentation, transporting a group of observers into a nightmarish new dimension.
