Editorial Reviews

Floating toward Beaver Mills, Alaska, is a glacier—an icy tomb for a prehistoric winged creature. Once released, it turns the small community into a feeding ground sending helpless residents into a fight for their lives. With time running out, trucker Jake Suttner sees only one option: steal the creature’s egg from its nest and use it as bait in a trap. But beware - the Wyvern is one angry mother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi Channel's Best Movie To Date! June 14, 2009

Wyvern: DVD Review

Grade: A

I waited for Wyvern to premiere for a while when it did on the Sci-Fi channel, (January 31, 2009-it was one of those Sci-Fi Saturday new movies) and recorded it and watched it the next day. The fact that it still sticks in my mind almost five months later is an incredible feat to me--I watch a ton of movies but rarely to I witness a gem like this one.

From the opening credits to the end credits, Wyvern has an energy to it that most horror movies don't have. It grabs you, and doesn't let go until the end. So after the movie had premiered on the Sci-Fi channel to good ratings (from what I hear, I'm not the only one that liked the movie better than typical Sci-Fi movies), I expected it to be immediately picked up for DVD, like other new releases had been. So I waited, and waited, and waited, and...waited some more. Finally it's here--and by the Maneater series, to my surprise.

The Maneater series, which includes such titles as Blood Monkey, In the Spider's Web, Shark Swarm, Eye of the Beast, Grizzly Rage, Maneater, Vipers,

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth waiting for! August 27, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just recently I'd re-watched a movie I thought was a good version of the usual Sci-Fi Channel formula, even more recently I've seen a creature feature with a storyline that surpasses that formula completely! I think the best I could do to summarize the feel of this movie is to say that if other Sci-Fi Channel movies were originally novels the channel had dumbed down to make adaptations of, Wyvern would be a faithful adaptation

UPDATE: Okay, now I have a good movie comparison. I'd say it's less like the average Sci-Fi Channel movie than it is like Lake Placid or maybe Tremors. Slower pace, charismatic oddball characters etc.

Comparatively, I think the CGI is better than the flying creatures from Tremors 3 and possibly a bit worse than Lake Placid though I'm not overly familiar with that one. Needless to say its better than what you'd expect from a TV movie.

So the title creature... its actually pretty good. The wyvern's anatomy is pretty good( I've had the misfortune of seeing some movies with silly-looking dragons recently, two of which had the heads of species of reptiles that just looked out of place).

Also we get gore effects in which the blood actually behaves like blood (not common for this channel) and when vehicles are damaged it looks a lot better than the obvious CGI model tumbling cars we normally get in low-budget, er... everything.

A lot of the characters have unusual quirks. They also react a lot more realistically to seeing people killed than the characters of most Sci-Fi Channel movies... or for that matter, most modern horror movies (let's face it; in most horror movies, even if people care before a character dies, they forget pretty quickly when that character dies)

Most importantly, though, this movie is very story-based and a lot of the deaths take place offscreen. If your idea of a good horror movie involves seeing lots of people slaughtered onscreen, I think you'd enjoy it a lot less.

I watched this movie on the SyFy channel and recorded it. It was soooo good!!! Loved the the characters, story line and especially the monster. It was great looking!! Unfortunately, when I deleted my cooking episodes, I accidently deleted this movie!! BUMMER...
They show their movies several times, but haven't shown this one since. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE DVD!!!! You gotta see this one!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the bunch September 1, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The best of the Sci Fi channel breed of B-movie entertainments so far (and the trend has been downward, so that's likely to remain the case). I'd say this, Behemoth and Sea Beast for the Guilty Pleasure trifecta. Here we have a classic sci fi monster movie scenario -- a handful of characters in an isolated locale beset by a terrible beastie -- and with both Don S. Davis and Barry Corbin (apologies if I misspelled the last name there) on board, you know it's worth a look. Neither disappoints -- in fact, they're clearly having fun with the material, and that makes it fun for the viewer. The movie is dedicated to the late Don S., as well, so it gets a thumbs-up for that classy and very appropriate gesture of appreciation. As for the star, Nick Chinlund is good in the hero spot, as he is in Ultraviolet as the villain (versatile guy!). And what a brilliant idea, setting the action in Alaska during round-the-clock daylight -- no night shoots means no lighting the night, etc. -- lower production costs! Kudos on just about every score here. Pop the corn, pour the root beer and enjoy.
