The only people who like destroying the world more than Roland Emmerich are the movie execs at Syfy, and they’re always coming up with new and more preposterous ways of wreaking havoc on humanity. Syfy’s latest source for our doom hails from the English countryside in the form of a Stonehenge Apocalypse, and you can witness the beginning of our demise in a new clip from the film debuting this weekend.
When a group of archaeologists dig up a human skeleton near the historical monument of Stonehenge, an ancient piece of machinery hidden beneath the bedrock is discovered. Not knowing what it could be, the workers accidentally trigger the mechanism and start a chain of events that may very well end the world as we know it.
Our only hope for salvation comes in the form of an Art Bell-ish radio talk-show host played by Mischa Collins of “Supernatural”. Hill Harper of “CSI: New York”, Tori Higginson of “Stargate: Atlantis”, and Peter Wingfield (AKA “Methos” of the later “Highlander” films) co-star in the cataclysmic thriller from prolific Syfy helmer Paul Ziller (Loch Ness Terror, Snakehead Terror, Ba’al the Storm God, and Android Apocalypse to name a few).
Syfy has provided a wacky two-minute scene from Stonehenge Apocalypse that brings to mind something you would see in an episode of “Dr. Who” if the writers had been licking toads that particular day.
Stonehenge Apocalypse premieres this Saturday night at 9/8 Central. Like you have anything better to do.
