A story about a mystical snow globe that makes very bad things happen in the real world of Normal, Alaska when it is shaken.

There are so many problems with this film that it makes me sad. Had it just been a cheap film of a small town that faces a volcano, that could have been a good story. But instead, they add a fantasy element and then make little effort to try to explain it.

Where did the globe come from? Who made it? Why is there a curse? Why this particular town? Why does the town believe it to be true when there is no obvious reason to think so? How do they know that the way to get rid of it is to throw it in the volcano? I mean, could they not just smash it? So, the plot just makes no sense... and that drags own the whole picture. I am all for fantasy (heck, I am a horror fanatic) but it just was not done right here.
