The Flick: The premise of this thing is as fromage ridden as they get, but damned if "Snowmageddon" didn’t entertain me.  A snow globe that has the exact model of the town inside and when key turned creates severe disasters for real?  Sounds like a ball right out of the Tall Man’s collection, but there’s also a cute small town vibe that keeps the flick from rolling completely out the window.  More a supernatural thriller then a disaster movie, there are decent effects (watch out for those flying fireballs!), a know-it-all shopkeeper and even a little hot Laura Harris action to boot.  (Okay she’s a mom in this, but she’s a hot mama!)  Maybe the ending does leave a bit to be desired, but for mid Sunday fluff fare I say let it snow.  

Best Feature: No features – I demand some Laura Harris making angels in the snow footage!  

Best Hidden Gem: Again, some may find the feisty daughter fetching, but for those of us who remember "The Faculty" Harris is our queen.

Worth the Moola: Mix roger Corman with the family channel and what do you get?  "Snowmageddon!"
