Better then most "Sci-Fi Channel Original Movies"
A Town Has Turned to Dust is hand above the average schlock that comes out under the handle "A Sci-Fi Channel Original Movie". Honestly, with their key demographic, why do they foist things like "Bombshell" and "Cyberjack" on us?

This movie, however, is different. Apparently based on a Rod Serling script , A Town Has Turned To Dust combines strong story telling, subtle effects, and well wrangled acting to form an enjoyable and thoughtful story.

Ron Perlman's character is surprisingly multi-faceted and can be identified with though his actions might be considered reprehensible.

All in all, this was a very strong piece of film making. I hope we see more of its style on the Sci-Fi Channel.
