Brought to you by the Executive Producers of Ice Quake, Mega Cyclone, Mongolian Death Worm and Stonehenge Apocalypse; Snowmaggedon-despite what everyone else has to say- is a pretty decent movie. I'll admit, the title is abit misleading(as the movie doesn't really have anything to do with end of the world stuff). However, for a SyFy Original, it kept me entertained until the end. This makes the second SyFy Original that I've purchased and twice I've liked the movies...so, at least, we know that SyFy is getting better at these wild movies(sometimes the plots are wayyy out there, lol) they put out there.
I know everyone is entitled to their opinion but not every movie that's made can be a billion dollar blockbuster. Snowmageddon ain't as bad as people let on. I really liked it myself and think they ought to make a part two. Seriously.
For its' asking price, Snowmageddon is worthy of a purchase.
It is hard to spoiler the plot of a production of this SyFy caliber. The movie opens with ominous music as a gift is placed on the doorstep of the Miller family during Christmas season in Normal, Alaska. It reminded me a bit of the beginning of "Evil Toons" but without porn stars. But I soon discovered one does not have to be a porn star to be a bad actor. If you missed the films, "Earthquake," "Avalanche" "Jumanji," "Volcano," "Ice Age 2012," and "ROTK" you are in for a real treat.
The gift is opened by "Dragon of the Crown" player Rudy (Dylan Matzke) the young boy. It contains a snow globe that contains a detailed replica of the town. Within about 10 minutes you will figure out whatever happens inside the evil snow globe, happens to this now isolated town. The question is who left it and why, something guessed at, but never fully explained.
Meanwhile the world's greatest snowboarder, Derrick Reed (Jeffrey Ballard) charters a helicopter with Beth Miller, (Laura Harris) the mom, who brings along her impressionable, slightly flirty teenage daughter Jennifer (Magda Apanowicz). It seems in December in Alaska it is hard to find a place to go snowboarding so champions charter helicopters to take them to mountain peaks.
During the course of the film the town is attacked by earthquake, avalanche, exploding ice storm, stalagmites, and a volcano. The armies of Mordor can be defeated once The Ring is cast into the fire of Mt. Doom.
What this film teaches us:
1.) If a Christmas gift is heavy, it's fruitcake.
2.) Game expansion sets make for stocking stuffers.
3.) If the dog barks at the gift, it is bad.
4.) Flirting is worse than ogling.

The CGI is limited, but I'm come to expect that from the Syfy Channel. And in some respect, have come to count on it. These dopey stories wouldn't be nearly as much fun were they up to par with most sci-fi adventures of note. It's their unrelenting ineptitude that makes them unique and watchable. I'm just glad that someone picked up on the sinister aspects of snow globes and brought it to our attention. Yeah, that's it, this movie was actually a public service warning.
