Trivia

When examining the Zodiac model at the Peruan lead mine, Professor Martin (Joel Gretsch) speaks of a "two thousand-year-old analogue computer" discovered in Greece. This is a reference to a real device, the Antikythera mechanism, a complex clockwork device that can predict astronomical positions. It is believed to have been built in 150 B.C., and was found in a shipwreck in the Aegean Sea. See more »

The zodiac catastrophe
17 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse is another of these SyFy funded disaster films. A mysterious artifact is discovered in Peru that triggers global catastrophes around the world which could destroy civilization.

A rogue scientist attempts to decipher the symbols on the artifact in an attempt to unlock its secrets which is linked to signs of the zodiac and hopefully save the world from destruction.

Like many of these films, its full of cheapo effects and a bad script and not so great acting. It only comes alive when Christopher Lloyd turns up and he is not in it for long, unfortunately for the movie.

Its just a run of the mill disaster film for SyFy without any wit or campy fun.
