New York, New York - April 14, 2010 - Monstrous worms unleashed from their ancient crypts and vicious witches declaring war on humanity wreak havoc during Syfy's May Saturday Original Movies.

In Mongolian Death Worm, premiering Saturday, May 8, at 9PM (ET/PT), treasure hunter Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints, Young Indiana Jones) and U.N. aide worker Victoria Pratt (Day Break) find themselves battling local bandits while searching for Genghis Khan's secret tomb in central Mongolia. The crypt is guarded by man-eating Mongolian death worms, who grow very angry at being disturbed.

Luke Goss (Hellboy 2), Ed Speleers (Eragon) and Sarah Douglas (Conan the Destroyer) star in Witchville, debuting Saturday, May 22, at 9PM (ET/PT). When his father dies, a prince (Goss) returns home to claim his kingdom, only to find it overrun by witches. Though he initially refuses to believe in magic, he soon finds himself locked in a brutal war with the witches, whose leader (the Red Queen) is his long-lost mother.
