Trailer for Syfy’s “Red” Contains Felicia Day, Clips From “The Howling” and Cheese

Syfy has posted the first trailer for their latest original movie, “Red”, staring Felicia Day. I have a feeling this got rushed out for SDCC (assuming that’s where it was shown), because it looks a little disjointed and they’ve cut in some werewolf footage from “The Howling” to pad it out. Weird! Overall it looks pretty cheesy, but I think that’s sort of the point– Syfy original movies aren’t expected to bring home any award hardware.

It says something about Syfy’s production values that practical werewolf effects from 1981 look better than the CGI werewolves they came up with on their own.

SyFy’s Secret Plan to Make a Good Werewolf Movie: Hire Felicia Day & Give Her a Gun

Do you trust SyFy? I want to trust SyFy but it’s hard, especially after they changed their name from Sci-Fi. Now comes news that Felicia Day will star in a SyFy movie called “Red”, where she’ll play a descendant of Little Red Riding Hood who “brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business — hunting werewolves.” Naturally the fiancé tangles with a werewolf and gets bitten, Red’s family freaks, and wacky hijinks ensue!

Sorry, I guess I’m a little skeptical after SyFy put out “War Wolves” and then announced their plan to Americanize “Being Human”. These recently released stills don’t do much for my confidence either, but then again, Felicia Day. She made the already-awesome “Dr. Horrible” even better, and, well, come on: “The Guild“. “Red” could actually be pretty good, especially if they let Day have her way with the script.
