Who says you can’t watch monster movies in March? While many people love to binge scary movies during Halloween, there is truly no time like the present to catch up on some nostalgic favorites. Comet TV is offering some fun marathons this month. Comet is a free channel available for streaming on Roku and Apple TV as well as online and on cable. It showcases the best of sci-fi and fantasy. In addition to movies, they also show reruns of shows like The X-Files, Stargate SG-1, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Grimm.

First up this weekend, Comet is showing the original and remake of Rollerball for their Mega Movie Saturday on March 16 starting at 1 p.m. ET. Rollerball is a science-fiction dystopian film starring the late James Caan, about a very violent sport called Rollerball and how one of its best athletes wants to defy anyone who wants him out of the game. The first film came out in 1975, while the remake premiered in 2002. The 2002 version stars Chris Klein, LL Cool J, and Rebecca Romijn.
