Stonehenge Apocalypse (2010)

A Low Budget End is Nigh

Former scientist turned conspiracy theorist Jacob (Misha Collins) is hosting his own radio show when one caller puts him on to something across the pond with an incident at Stonehenge on the Salisbury plains. The incident involved the mystical stones having moved and generated some sort of destructive energy which did for a group of visiting tourists. Having immediately arrived in England to investigate it becomes clear that the events at Stonehenge have triggered events across the globe with ancient pyramids turn in to volcanoes. Jacob and Kaycee (Torri Higginson), a scientist who believes his theories, must find out what is going on and some how find a way to prevent it before the world is destroyed.

What makes a person want to watch a movie even though it is bad? I often wonder this as I enjoy the sort of movie which some might refer to as worst movie ever. And I know I am not alone because if people didn't enjoy these bad movies then there wouldn't be such a regular flow of them being made. That leads me to "Stonehenge Apocalypse" another one of these bad disaster, the end of the World is nigh movies which are made for TV but end up making their way, inexplicably, on to DVD. And like others which have crossed over from late night TV to DVD "Stonehenge Apocalypse" is miles away from being a good movie yet it still entertains.

The thing about "Stonehenge Apocalypse" is that behind the special effects, which include not only your regular collection of flashes, flames and sparks but also a terrible CG version of Stonehenge, all we have left is the formula. We have the lone voice of reason in Jacob who no one takes seriously to start with as the authorities, which in this case are the military, set about locking him up. But then at some point he finds himself with a female ally and together try to save the day before the World goes up in flames or something else which a writer has thought up. The actual cause of the commotion and how they actually save the day is of no rela importance what so ever and neither are the characters.

What this all boils down to is that "Stonehenge Apocalypse" is just another late night made for TV disaster movie which has snuck its way on to DVD. It isn't very good and uses the same formula which many of these movies use yet somehow in its cheapness it still manages to entertain.
