10 Ridiculous Scenes From SyFy Original Movies

 cap1.jpg

Have you ever watched a SyFy original movie?  To call them absurd would be an understatement.  Don’t get me wrong – they can often be sort of fun to watch – but drama isn’t really the calling card of the SyFy network.  I wish they’d get their act together and put some decent movies in rotation (sort of like how Comedy Central has done with movies like Office Space and Hot Rod), but it looks like the network instead opts to churn out formulaic original movies where a handsome guy and a hit girl confront some sort of computer-generated beast.

Below, take a look at 10 particularly ridiculous scenes from 10 ridiculous SyFy original movies.

Hey look, it’s Bruce Campbell!  And those aliens look a lot like prawns, huh?

Anacondas: Trail of Blood

Anacondas are so over the squeezing to death technique; chomping off the head is so much more effective.

Aztec Rex

Cannonballs bounce off, but an arrow sticks?  Ok, sure.

Basilisk: The Serpent King

It’s pretty tough to feel sorry for this woman.

Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep

Tentacles indeed.

Ice Spiders

Easily the least-frightening creatures found in a SyFy original movie.

You do not mess with Feedback.

Swamp Devil

Kind of reminds me a bit of the Swamp Thing crossed with Alex from the game Prototype.

Wyvern

I kind of wanted it to keep trying to get through that door.

This is really a bunch of clips, but I think you get the idea.
