SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Brendan Fehr Stars in "Ice Quake"

Brendan Fehr in Ice QuakeGrowing up in Canada, Brendan Fehr did not plan on being an actor. For some quick-cash he stopped by Look Talent Management for a modeling assignment when the manager suggested he try acting instead. The rest is history.

Most people probably know Fehr for his work on Roswell as the character Michael Guerin, or perhaps from CSI: Miami or Bones. He however, has also appeared in other series, such as Millennium and Samurai Girl. He has worked in film as well, landing roles in Disturbing Behavior, Final Destination, and The Forsaken, to name a few.

Fehr now can be seen starring in the Syfy original movie, Ice Quake, premiering tonight on Syfy at 9PM ET/PT.

Ice Quake, which also stars Victor Garber (Alias, Glee), takes place on Christmas Eve, when the Alaskan permafrost thaws, creating underground rivers of liquid methane, causing earthquakes. A family is separated and must find each other and work together to stop an explosion that could wipe out the planet.

Brendan Fehr sat down with the digital media to discuss life and this upcoming role.

Review: The Walking Dead 1x03, "Tell it to the Frogs"

By Karen Moul

The Walking DeadAs The Walking Dead approached the halfway point of the season, the writers took a step back and gave us some character development and group dynamics.  Episodes like this are needed to sustain the major themes through the rest of this season and into next.  While it seemed as if not a lot happened, we had a huge advance in the Rick-Lori-Shane storyline.  Add in some compelling action among the supporting cast and overall this was another excellent episode. 

The Grimes family reunion was handled beautifully.  I actually had a knot in my stomach waiting for Shane and Lori to see Rick. I can't remember the last time a TV show made me feel that much tension and anticipation, probably not since Lost.  Sarah Wayne Callies was excellent in this scene, in just a few moments you could see the disorientation on Lori's face, then the recognition, and perhaps a split second of joy before her expression turned to horror.   Andrew Lincoln's reactions as Rick saw his son were also moving.  Nice work all around.

"Skyline" Will Pull You In

SkylineIf you have seen the trailer for the science fiction thriller Skyline, which opens in theaters today, you may think you have the movie figured out, but you would be wrong. The previews have had people comparing Skyline to movies such as Independence Day or War of the Worlds, but they were intentionally misleading. The creators of the film, Colin and Greg Strause, who also directed the film, did not want people feeling like they knew the movie from the trailers; they wanted them to be surprised. Yes, the movie has fantastic special effects, and yes, it is about aliens taking over, but that's not what lies at the heart of the film. You won't see governments making plans to annihilate the aliens. You'll instead see a group of people fighting for survival in the best ways they know how. Some will try to run; others will stay behind. What would you do?

The story follows Jarrod, played by Eric Balfour (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, 24, Haven), and his girlfriend as they travel to meet Jarrod's friend Terry (Donald Faison; Clueless, Scrubs), who now is living it up in a penthouse in Los Angeles. The group wake up after partying to what at first is assumed to be an earthquake, but they soon discover it to be much more. Blue light streams in through the windows and one of Terry's friends (Neil Hopkins; Lost, Castle) goes to check it out and suddenly disapears. Jarrod's journey starts, when while trying to help, he is pulled into the light himself, only escaping presumed death by the help of his friends as they struggle and eventually pull him back. They watch in terror as the spaceships' lights take a hold of the people of LA, and the aliens eventually venture into the buildings to capture the rest.

The group struggles to make the right choices to survive the invasion. The twists in the movie will surprise you, and as Eric Balfour, the star of the movie said in a recent, exclusive interview with Sci Fi Vision, "It's not your Disney alien movie. There's no happy ending."

Ryan Copple Surprises "Riese" Fans

RieseImagine talking about one of your favorite series, when suddenly the creator of the show calls in to join the discussion. That's exactly what happened last night on our podcast, Fandom Access. Riese: Kingdom Falling creator, writer, and producer Ryan Copple surprised the cohosts and the fans by calling in to the show live to answer questions.

According to Copple, the story of Riese did not originally start out as a web series. "It started as a short that I wrote with a friend of mine. And it was really inspired by a lot of personal events, because I’ve traveled a lot, and some anime influences. We took it to Kaleena Kiff, who is the other creator of Riese. We asked her to direct the short and she was like “No, no, no, this isn’t a short; this is a series." So Kaleena and I co-created it into a world. Whereas the short was about Riese herself, traveling with a wolf, it was more of a standalone journey, entering a really weird town and having some sort of moral dilemma that she faced. We were able to build it as a world and a series that had lots of characters to bring it to life and a whole serialized arc that could carry it throughout the show. And it just sort of grew from there, from both of us.

We were actually referencing a lot of [steampunk] before we actually knew what steampunk was, and then eventually I think I found a Wikipedia entry and I said to Kaleena, “This is what we’ve been talking about this whole time. It’s exactly what it is: steampunk.” We always say we’re steampunk-inspired, because we’re not the purest steampunk where it’s more the Victorian era. Instead we see Riese as more of a Dark Ages-Medieval meets World War I time period...It feels very fantasy and medieval, but at times there are certain hints of modern technology. Like when she’s in the hospital there are some very modern things, and it’s sort of the blending of those two eras. And that’s what’s really fun about steampunk, the “what if” of it, just imagining what could be in a different future."
