SYFY AND RHI ENTERTAINMENT TO CO-PRODUCE THE ORIGINAL MOVIES THE OTHER SIDE AND ROADKILL
Released by Syfy

New York, NY - April 12, 2010 - RHI Entertainment and Syfy today announced they will co-produce two movies which will air on Syfy in 2011 and will also be available for worldwide distribution at MIP-TV. The Other Side and Roadkill will both begin production on location in Ireland this summer.

The Other Side, written by Douglas G. Davis (Carny), is the story of a groundbreaking device designed to glimpse alternate universes. But when the machine malfunctions on its first demonstration and transports a group of observers into a nightmarish new dimension of bizarre alien terrors, the travelers must use ingenuity and courage to survive. But even if they stay alive, without a working transport, the group may never make it home.
