SCI FI Channel has previewed some of its plans for original movies for the 2004-2005 season. Part of the slate includes: Dead Rail, with a detective on a new bullet train fights aliens; Darklight, with an immortal warrior vs. genetically engineered creature complete with deadly virus; Chupacabra, where the mythical “Goatsucker” escapes in America; Raptor Island, where a search for a kidnapped scientist turns up everybody’s favorite carnivore; Mansquito and Hammerhead, both human-turned-creature flicks; Alien Blood, a vaguely V-like premise, except it sounds like they don’t pretend to be friends; and Larva, your worst nightmare about that hamburger you left out too long…
