KUSA - Fans of sci-fi horror, and of Billy Campbell, should enjoy Helix, a mash-up of The Thing and The Andromeda Strain that sends a team of CDC scientists led by Campbell's Dr. Farragut to a remote Arctic research facility where an experiment has gone hideously wrong (as they tend to do in such films).
The plot creaks, but for the most part, Helix is sufficiently scary.
Unfortunately, outside of Campbell, it's insufficiently cast and performed.
Helix is on Fridays on the Syfy Channel at 10 ET/PT.
