Grendel Comes Loping Toward Us

Sometimes I hate my life.

SciFi channel is premiering a movie entitled "Grendel" on January 13th. I'm going to have to watch it, despite the facts, which are:

  • All movies on SciFi stink, though they often have good series.
  • Marina Sirtis is in it.
  • It has a character named "Ingrid."
  • The promo video has both catapaults AND flaming crossbows.
  • It also has a giant snake. Perhaps it is meant to be a dragon.

I'm hoping for some kind of crisis Friday night, to save me from this fate -- or my wyrd, if you will.


  1. So I take it you didn't appreciate the SciFi version of the Saga of the Volsungs.

  2. I wonder if the Grendel movie will be as bad as the Sci-Fi Channel monster movie with my all-time favorite title: Mansquito.

  3. There's a good reason it's called the Sci Fi Channel, and not the Science Fiction Channel after all. :)

    Think of it as today's answer to the Amazing Stories of Ray Palmer's day, when every third story was Robert Silverberg under a pseudonym.
