‘Stargate Atlantis’ Gets Horror Movie Makeover

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Things are about to get scary on the sci-fi show Stargate Atlantis.

For the fifth season of the Sci-Fi Channel’s galaxy quest space series, premiering tonight (Jul. 11), producers created a horror-inspired episode, titled Whispers, to add a bit of chill to the show.

Executive producer Joseph Mallozi says, “I’ve always been a big fan of horror, even before sci-fi. So I wanted to do an episode that would be a total scare fest.”

To freak out Stargate fans, Mallozi employs all the classic horror effects, including fog and jump sequences, and hints, “What you don’t see is so much scarier than what you do see.”

Though the episode promises to be a creepy mini-movie, Mallozi is hoping it walks the line between freaky and fun.

He explains, “I hope angry parents don’t write the network because we’ve scared their kids, but I want horror fans to enjoy it also.”
