The Flick: Originally titled "12 Disasters of Christmas," this looks, smells and feels like Syfy Channel work.  A poor man’s "2012" (which wasn’t a stellar flick either!) this one has Canadian acting staple Donnelly Rhodes (he of "Danger Bay" Fame!) playing a local town weirdo who obsesses over a end of days like prophecy which of course ends up coming true.  (Surprise, surprise!)  The town eventually becomes divided "Lord of the Flies" style when a local girl seems to be the cause and possible end of it all.  A paint by numbers disaster flick (think "Volcano" and "Dante’s Peak" minus any charisma!) with cardboard cutout characters and gamey effects – forgettable Sunday fluff fare.

Best Feature: No features – guess nobody is claiming responsibility for this sucker!

Best Hidden Gem: Lead man Ed Quinn seems like he shound be picking better projects.

Worth the Moola: Only if you’re truly hard up and everything else is out – even then it’s a gamble!
