SyFy Movie Update: Frost Giant Starring …
Ok everyone; I hope you’re sitting down for this one. We already know about and are excited about the upcoming SyFy Channel flick SHARKTOPUS (being released later this summer). We know and we’re all excited. But now I just got word that the SyFy Channel is making a movie called FROST GIANT. If you’re like me (and god help you if you are), you’ll spend way too much time wondering what the creature will look like. Is it some previously thought extinct creature that’s released from the ice a la GODZILLA? Nope. Is it some kind of Yeti creature grown to a ridiculous size due to global warming? Not even close. The creature … well I don’t wanna ruin it for ya. Click HERE to see the clips (sorry to redirect you, but WordPress is kind of a pain in the ass when it comes to embedding video clips):
So there ya have it; the creature isn’t something released FROM the ice; the creature IS the ice itself!! Is there nothing the SyFy Channel won’t air?? But, so help me, it looks pretty damn fun. And who, pray tell, will be the star of this chilling mess? Why none other than ex-TV Superman himself, DEAN CAIN. How could this one NOT be fun. It’s slated to be aired August 7th, 9/8 Central and is directed by Víctor García (RETURN TO HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL) and is written by Rafael Jordan (YETI: CURSE OF THE SNOW DEMON). I can’t find an official plot summary, but from the above clips it looks like a group of treasure hunters are looking for gold in a left over set from THE THING PREQUEL and they accidentally unleash the titular creature. Actually I’m pretty certain there’s absolutely nothing more to it than that!!
I’ll keep ya updated as more info becomes available.
