We have nothing to do with this movie!

[adrotate banner=”1″]August 16th has seen the rescheduling of original film Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse. The film was originally slated to premiiere in April, but was pushed back and replaced by Bermuda Tentacles. But baring any other last-minute replacement, Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse should finally get its moment in the sun.

A museum curator gets more than she bargained for when an ancient astrology board shows up at work… an ancient astrology board that could DESTROY THE WORLD!

Damn, astrology is more dangerous than I thought! Must be the fault of those darn Scorpios! Trust me when I say this is sort of intriguing in a weird sort of way. Here’s hoping it just doesn’t turn out to be something stupid! This is the first original film after the whole Sharknado Week promotion, and maybe it means we’ll get some more regular SyFy original movie action! Or they’re just filling an empty slot on the schedule.

The film stars Joel Gretsch, Christopher Lloyd, Aaron Douglas, and Andrea Brooks. Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse is directed by W.D. Hogan (Independence Daysaster) and written by newcomer David Sanderson.

The Mentor – Lifetime meets evil, and it’s a man!

The Mentor Lifetime
[adrotate banner=”1″]Lifetime is taking a break from novel adaptations and play adaptations and killer internet tales to go old school, and by that I mean breaking out the evil evil men! The Mentor features an obsessed stalker coworker who acts as a mentor to his victim. Throw in a dead kid and a stressed marriage, and this is like a superflu version of a regular Lifetime film, multiple plots rolled into one! Hopefully it’s far more fun than Captain Trips…

The Mentor is yet another film written by Lifetime super-star Christine Conradt, who must be single-handedly keeping Lifetime in the movie business by the rate that she keeps pumping out scripts! Director Anthony Lefresne has directed Another Man’s Wife and the upcoming Guilty at 17 (another in the at 17 series!)

Battlestar Galactica alum Aaron Douglas plays the stalker/mentor Paul Allenham, Jes Macallan plays the woman who gets an awful coworker, and Nic Bishop plays her estranged husband.

For some reason there isn’t much about this film at all on Lifetime’s site, they are barely acknowledging it’s a new film and have skipped on to promoting Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs, and the only promo shot is an image so bad even Aaron Douglas has made fun of it! But TarsTarkas.NET is on the case, and that shot is the one at the top of this article!

Elizabeth May tries to put the loss of her eight-year-old daughter behind her by going back to teaching. Under the stress of the tragedy her husband Brian May has moved out while Elizabeth is desperate to save her marriage and return to a life of normalcy. In her new job she is assigned a mentor, Paul Allenham, who is hiding a deep dark violent past. Paul has an immediate and unsettling attraction to Elizabeth; he will do anything to secure her love.

The Mentor premieres June 14th on Lifetime!

Ghost Storm rages on SyFy

[adrotate banner=”1″]
November 10 sees the premier of Ghost Storm, the true story of a storm that was full of ghosts that attacked the planet. Or some random small island so we can save on extra expenses. As the plot sez:

An action packed chase led by Hal and Ashley to save the people on this small island from a strange electrical storm which is led by angry souls from a mass suicide looking for revenge.

So they’re storm chasers? Ghost storm chasers. Was the mass suicide some dumb cult, and then everyone is mad that there was no alien spaceship to take them away so they become evil rainclouds? It’s sad when your religion is a bit off, but that’s no reason to go all crazy. Just suck it up and help water some farmer’s fields, you jerks! This is a SyFy channel original flick, so expect lots of ghosts and storms and CGI craziness and actors who were on popular shows a few years ago.
Crystal Allen, Carlos Bernard, and Aaron Douglas star. Ghost Storm is written and directed by Paul Ziller, of Sea Beast and Snakehead Terror fame.

The Surgeon General is going to put so many warnings on this film!
