Cyborgs, Santa Claus and Satan PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cyborgs, Santa Claus and Satan free pdf Since the first SF film produced for television - 1968's "Shadow on the Land" - nearly 600 of the films initially released to television have had science fiction, fantasy, or horror themes. Featuring superheroes, monsters, time travel, magic, and other elements of their big screen counterparts, these films range from the phenomenal to the forgettable, from low-budget two-hour films to blockbuster mini-series. Some, like "The Ewok Adventure", were based on theatrical releases, while others, like "Babylon 5", have developed into very popular series. Information on all of these films released in America from 1968 through 1998 is collected here. Entries are arranged alphabetically and include cast and credits, a plot synopsis, and qualitative commentary, as well as notes on interesting points (e.g., future stars, salutes to other films). Appendices include a listing of films that, while not strictly genre movies, include some science fiction, horror, or fantasy elements- a chronology of the films- and a guide to alternate video or syndication titles.
