A list of every Syfy original movie that has currently been aired. Every Syfy channel movie has been included. Syfy original movies are typically made for only one or two million dollars and air saturday nights on the Syfy channel. The genre is, of course, usually science fiction, but they do sometimes lean into fantasy. The company in charge of these movies is known as "Sci Fi Pictures". Despite their low budget and made for tv status, these films are a lot of fun and a few are even some of the best sci-fi movies we've seen recently.
