I don’t know why I’m bothering to write about a supernatural Syfy disaster flick called Snowmageddon about a magical snow globe that when shaken unleashes a wintery apocalypse when the actual apocalypse is a little more than a day away. Do you realize when my life passes before my eyes how many of these Syfy movies I’m going to end up watching again in mega fast forward?
David Cubitt (“Medium”), Michael Hogan (“Battlestar Galactica”), and Magda Apanowicz (“Caprica”) star in this Cinetel production from director Sheldon Wilson (Shallow Ground, Mothman) that’ll probably make its bow on Syfy sometime this holiday season given the film’s plot synopsis. Snowmageddon‘s plot kind of sounds like the basis for a very special Christmas episode of “Friday the 13th: The Series” that never got made.
When the Miller family discovers a mysterious gift outside their home on Christmas Eve, they could never imagine it would contain the power to doom their idyllic mountain community. The gift contains a snow globe with a perfect reflection of their own town inside. When they shake it, snow even begins to fall – whatever happens inside the snow globe happens to their town for real. But when buttons on the snow globe unleash a series of terrible disasters on the town, the family must band together and find a way to destroy it – before it’s too late.
But what does any of this matter? The world as we know it is ending Saturday, May 21st, so sayeth some crazy old preacher who incorrectly predicted Judgment Day back in 1994 but has since recrunched the numbers using Randy Marsh’s penis length equation to more accurately calculate the precise day of Armageddon. I kind of hope he’s right just to stick it to those snooty Mayans and all their 2012 doomsday crap. Up yours, Apocalypto!
