Shocking News: Sci Fi Channel Movie Doesn't Suck

This Saturday's Sci Fi Channel original TV movie, Rock Monster, is actually pretty decent, a reviewer from Variety says. And nobody's more surprised than the Variety scribe. In Rock Monster, a backpacker pulls a sword out of a stone (just like King Arthur) and the stone comes to life and starts killing lots of people in a graphic way. What elevates Rock Monster above the usual Sci Fi Saturday drek is the hero's female friend who wields a big gun with panache, plus winks to Jaws and American Werewolf In London. Color us still skeptical, but intrigued. [Variety]
