Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse is yet another forgettable SyFy Original Movie that is more filler for that station than anything. Its uber-cheap production budget is evident with utterly laughable visual effects, subpar acting and a paint-by-numbers script that utilizes the same formula of other TV movies used in the past 10+ years. The DVD released by Anchor Bay is really basic with no bonus material and average/adequate audio/video transfers.

PLOT SUMMARY

When a primitive astrology carving is unearthed in Peru, it triggers explosive meteor storms around the world. But this is only the beginning: Tsunamis, lightning storms, lava geysers and giant waterspouts erupt globally, each disaster corresponding to a specific sign of the zodiac. Will a mysterious government agency now kill to hide a shocking planetary secret, or can a group of rogue scientist race against time and carnage to activate an ancient civilization’s Armageddon machine?

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

Outside of a glossy and embossed slip cover, no features have been included.

VIDEO – 3.75/5 | AUDIO – 3.0/5

Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse reins down onto DVD presented with an anamorphic widescreen transfer with bright colors and decent clarity and minimal banding, artifacts and other flaws.

The movie includes a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 track which is serviceable but hardly noteworthy with the bulk of the audio coming through the center channel.

OVERALL – 2.0/5

Overall, Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse is yet another forgettable SyFy Original Movie that is more filler for that station than anything. Its uber-cheap production budget is evident with utterly laughable visual effects, subpar acting and a paint-by-numbers script that utilizes the same formula of other TV movies used in the past 10+ years. The DVD released by Anchor Bay is really basic with no bonus material and average/adequate audio/video transfers.
