Syfy channel aired one hell of a movie on Saturday January 15th 2011 that is totally action packed. Syfy has finally gotten the Saturday monster movie right for a change, so if you’ve got a spare couple of hours on the weekend in between gaming and reading pokerblog.com, check it out. It was a believable film as far as science fiction goes and even threw in some ancient legends to explain how cultures in the past just vanished over night. The script was well written and the acting was tremendous.
Behemoth stars Cindy Busby from Heartland and The Vampire Diaries , Michael Adamthwaite from New Moon, Ed Quinn from Eureka and Gary Chalk, from Stargate SG1. Director David Hogan takes this cast and others as well as us on a wild adventure in the north western mountains. One of the mountains starts to rumble and the locals fear that the mountain is about to go volcanic but it is far worse then that. The only person in the town that has a solid clue or theory about what is happening is the town loon played by William B. Davis.
There is something sinister stirring under the mountain and it has its tentacles woven around the entire world. The creature is waking up and there doesn’t seem like there is anything anyone can do but to duck and cover. No matter what people try to do or figure out it keeps going wrong in the worst way and even parts of the town are completely swallowed up leaving people stranded and afraid.
In the story we find that the government has been monitoring the mountain and have come up with a defense. The only problem with the governments plans is that everyone who knows anything about it keeps dieing before the information can be useful. It is up to the Sheriff, Thomas and Emily played by Pascale Hutton to try and save the day.
This is one film that you hope will come out on DVD so that you can keep a copy to watch again and again. It is good old fashion science fiction that grabs a hold of you and doesn’t let you go till the very end.
