In the small Ascension, the constructor Thomas Walsh is working with his team at the Mount Lincoln. Out of the blue, there are tremors and the branch of the tree fall over Thomas' employee and breaks his leg. He brings his truck and finds the man dead. He brings the man to the town and finds that his sister Grace Walsh plans to camp at the mountain with her sweetheart Jerrod Dietrich while their lunatic father William Walsh defends the theory that an ancient being is near to be released on Earth and destruct the planet. Meanwhile, the geologist Emily Allington returns to her hometown Ascension to investigate the tremors. The army representative Jack Murray also comes to Ascension to search a mysterious wallet that was lost on the mountain. Soon the dwellers of Ascension discover the secret of the tremors. Written by

No surprises here and fun if you play the "Cliché Game": Watch the movie and try to count the clichés. 1 point for standard cliché, 5 points for ridiculous. I lost count after about 500 points.
This is pretty much standard made-for-TV movie fare. With the predictable moments fighting it out with the ridiculous moments for top prize.
One of my favorite "what the BLEEP" moments was when the Sheriff finally decides to believe the "experts" and evacuate the town all he says to the townsfolk is, "Grab your stuff and get out of town!" Since the town is so small, "out of town" is about 200 yards away. Not a lot of help...
The actors do their best with a horrible script but, as another reviewer stated, the women for the most part stand there screaming, "What's happening!!" over and over. There is a character named Zoe that you really want to slap repeatedly after 2 or 3 scenes...
Watch this for an excellent lesson on how to make a really bad movie!
