  • Sand Serpents: I happened upon this SyFy movie while house sitting and exploring cable again. It was terrible retelling of Tremors which at least had characters in it I liked.  If you are looking to torture yourself they are streaming it on netflix.  Do yourself a favor and Avoid this one like a plague.

Aliens in the Attic UK trailer

This is going to be a goofy movie and possibly overly kidsy, but this trailer made me laugh hard.

Aliens in the Attic was written by a writer from Madagascar and another from Wallace and Gromit.  It looks like an homage comedy hearkening back to CHUD with aliens that look like the cute, minor, monster aliens from Galaxy Quest.

You have to watch this trailer for one thing:
