In light of the holidays right around the corner, Syfy is continuing in the Christmas spirit with a new Saturday Original movie called Ice Quake, as a family is forced to fight for survival among cataclysmic disasters instead of simply fighting the thought of whether or not to have another plate of leftovers. While caught on a mountain that’s covered in white as far as the eye can see the surface begins to rumble and the land begins to open. An invisible field pops up out of the crack that causes a turn for the worst. Watch the clip and tune in on December 11th at 9/8c only on Syfy.
CATACLYSMIC METHANE-FUELED EARTHQUAKES THREATEN EARTH’S SURVIVAL IN CHRISTMAS AND FAMILY-THEMED SYFY SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIE ICE QUAKE
PREMIERES SATURDAY, DECEMBER 11, AT 9PM (ET/PT)
New York, NY -- November 29, 2010 -- As the end of the year nears, so might the end of the world in the holiday-themed Syfy Saturday Original Movie Ice Quake.
Starring Brendan Fehr (Bones, Roswell) and Victor Garber (Glee, Alias), Ice Quake premieres Saturday, December 11, at 9PM (ET/PT). In the movie, the melting Alaskan permafrost is about to drastically alter the tranquil Christmas scenery. As the permafrost thaws, underground rivers of volatile liquid methane are created, causing a succession of violent and destructive earthquakes.
One family, separated by the disastrous events on Christmas Eve, must find each other (and their dog!) and then work together in the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness to stop the deadly methane rivers before they lead to a catastrophic explosion that threatens the entire planet.
A production of Cinetel Films, Ice Quake is directed by Paul Ziller (Stonehenge Apocalypse, Polar Storm).
Ice Quake airs as the final original programming piece of Syfy’s first ever Countdown to Christmas week running December 6-12.
And don’t forget -- pop princess rivals Debbie Gibson and Tiffany square off in the Syfy Saturday Original Movie Mega Python Vs Gatoroid in January!
