In eastern Pennsylvania, Marcus believes in doomsday and has long prepared for it. He has instilled this belief in his adult children Geoff and Melissa, although Melissa has quietly rebelled in some of the "soldier" training, preferring rather to do things like sing in the church choir. Marcus also has a small following. This preparedness does not help Marcus as when a large radioactive meteor hits the area, he is caught outside the sealed bunker, while Geoff, Melissa and most of his followers make it to safety inside. Fast forward ten years. Most of those inside the bunker are still alive and have not left it not knowing definitively what has happened outside. But some are forced to go outside when something happens to one of the bunker's exterior solar panels, which must be repaired within three days for their survival. A small team, including Geoff and Melissa, volunteer not only to go outside to repair the panel, but to survey their exterior surroundings. Outside, they find that ...Written by
A meteoroid is a small rocky or metallic body traveling through space. A meteoroid entering the Earth's atmosphere is known as a meteor. If a meteoroid, comet or asteroid actually hits the ground it is known as a meteorite. Meteoroids only range in size from small particles to about 1-meter wide and there is no such thing as a "planet-killer meteor".
As the earth still is in one piece, no "planet-killer meteor" has hit it as yet, but if you look here:
you will find that the idea of meteorites being no larger than 1 meter (or so) is just ludicrous.
Also if you look here:
the idea of a meteorite strike causing the kind of destruction that this movie postulates becomes a lot more plausible. See more »

I switched on it for i think five minutes to see something like this: Bunker doors open Group of young actors step out wearing pristine military gear, one actor says some dumb exposition like "been down there ten years, would rather die than spend another day down there" all proceed to speak perfect cliché military lingo to some old guy father figure "ten-four we got a fox-trot code 9"(something the old guy taught them?), something really stupid about implausible & impracticable solar panels happens, A military vehicle appears out of nowhere and apparently "purrs like a kitten" somehow after 10 years of presumably being totally inactive.
They drive up to a house, guy checks radiation levels or something dumb, something with two arms and walking on two legs opens a door and makes a noise, everyone starts uncontrolled firing at it for absolutely no reason(something the old guy taught them?). Another obvious human pops around a corner and they also shoot it for no reason.
"what is this?" looks down at obvious human body "SOME KINDA WERID ANIMAL OR SOMETHING" touches it, shows man with green face paint, "raaar" opens eyes with terrible CGI effect.
that's when I changed the channel. My brain couldn't take anymore. I feel bad for anyone who continued to watch it.
How do movies like this get made? How do you get a budget to make a first draft script made into a movie? I've literally read better scripts online that will never be made into a film.
I can see this being on an 8 movie pack in a wall-mart 5$ garbage bin, but how the hell did it make it to an actual movie channel on satellite television? Mind boggling. It literally made me mad.
