Oh yes, this movie exists.
For those that grew up watching The Wonder Years on TV, Danica McKellar may forever be known as Winnie Cooper, Fred Savage's fictional boyhood crush who set many a prepubescent heart on fire over the show's six seasons. Twenty years later, McKellar has been mostly out of the public eye, except for those that have read her four non-fiction books about math, or those Wonder Years fans who saw her lingerie photos from Stuff Magazine back in 2005.
Well, now McKellar is back in SyFy's latest cinematic venture, January 19th's Tasmanian Devils. Playing a no-nonsense park ranger who is tasked with fighting off monstrous Tasmanian devils who have found a taste for human blood. If watching Winnie Cooper setting fire to carnivorous marsupials while wielding a blowtorch like she was Sigourney Weaver in Alien doesn't sound ridiculously awesome enough for you yet, check out the fate suffered by Olympic Gold medalist Apolo Ohno in this recently released trailer.

Ridiculously Awesome Trailers
Tasmanian Devils was directed by visual effects specialist Zach Lipovsky, which explains why the movie looks a cut above SyFy's usual low-budget fare — depending on your perspective, we suppose. Rekha Sharma (Battlestar Galactica) and Roger R. Cross (24) co-star.
