Every holiday is a great excuse for the Syfy channel to bring forth some kind of entertaining TV marathon for their viewers. This year is no different.
via press release
Syfy will celebrate the holiday season with the Original Movie Christmas Icetastrophe, a Christmas Day disaster film marathon, and the 20th annual New Year’s Eve celebration of Rod Serling’s legendary series The Twilight Zone, which will take viewers into a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.
Among the iconic episodes airing during this year’s marathon will be Nightmare at 20,000 Feet, To Serve Man, Time Enough at Last and Eye of the Beholder.
Syfy began transporting viewers into that middle ground between science and superstition on December 31, 1995.
In Christmas Icetastrophe, premiering Saturday, December 20 at 9PM (ET/PT), an asteroid strikes a small town preparing for Christmas, triggering an explosive wave of ice crystals that threatens to freeze all life on Earth. The movie stars Victor Webster (Continuum), Jennifer Spence (Stargate Universe) and Richard Harmon (Bates Motel).
On Tuesday, December 23, Syfy will present a season one marathon of Wizard Wars from 6PM to 12AM. Wizard Wars returns Thursday, January 29 at 10PM.
The holiday programming festival heats up on Christmas Day with a full day of cold weather-themed movies.
Syfy will close out 2014 with The Twilight Zone marathon, which runs Wednesday, December 31 from 8AM until 5AM, concluding Thursday, January 1 from 6AM to 6AM.
