First up is Monsterwolf, in which Robert Picardo (“Richard Woolsey”) and co-star Jason London (Wildfire) battle a Native American animal spirit. It airs this Saturday, October 9 starting at 9 p.m. (8 Central). Here’s how Syfy describes the story:
An oil company defies a court injunction against drilling on tribal land. Their blasting releases the Kachinawaya, a Native American animal spirit meant to protect Indian lands from invaders.

On October 30, turn out the lights and be on the lookout for Red: Werewolf Hunter, starring Kavan Smith (“Major Lorne”) alongside sci-fi’s favorite sister, Felicia Day (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dr. Horrible). Day stars as Virginia Sullivan, a werewolf-hunting descendant of Little Red Riding Hood.
Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business — hunting werewolves. He’s skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him.
Smith’s character is named Nathan. Stephen McHattie (Watchmen) also co-stars. Check out the trailer:
It’s all part of Syfy’s annual “31 Days of Halloween” month, culminating in a live, 6-hour telecast of Ghost Hunters on Halloween night.
