tasmanian devils danica mckeller syfy Danica McKellar and Apolo Ohno kill monsters in Syfy's 'Tasmanian Devils'Syfy has a new original movie on deck for this coming weekend — “Tasmanian Devils,” which has the tagline that the devils “go wild after a taste of human blood.” So you know it’s gonna be good stuff.

But what makes it even awesomer is that Danica McKellar (yes, Winnie Cooper) stars alongside Apolo Ohno (yes, Olympic speed skater) in the movie. No, that is not a joke. Toss in Kenneth Mitchell from “Jericho,” Rekha Sharma from “Battlestar Galactica” and Roger R. Cross from “24” and we might just have appointment viewing on our hands.

“Tasmanian Devils” debuts Saturday, Jan. 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy. Check out the trailer below to whet your appetite.
