2012 ICE Age

The big villain in Asylum's latest B-movie is a glacier that moves "really, really fast." Yup, it's a war with ice that has volcanoes underneath. And if you're looking for something a little more heady, check out this wondrously demented short created out of old yearbooks.
2012: Ice AgeAsylum has mixed glaciers and volcanoes, and what did they get? The Day After Tomorrowwith even worse acting and less wolves! But we're not complaining, we love a good new Ice Age feature — it's a perfect way to relieve yourself from the summer heat, plus it requires zero brain power to follow. And why yes, that is the guy from JAG (not the main character, the other guy). Now it even has something your grandparents will love!
Once It Started It Could Not End OtherwiseFrom the lowbrow to the highbrow.  It's crafted entirely out of old yearbook photos! Sears has constructed a deeply disturbing bit of footage that attempts to uncover what really happened in 1974. A lot left open, so you have to draw the conclusions yourself.
Part disaster film, part Freudian animation, Once It Started... bears witness to a series of absurd and horrible disasters that strike an American high school, eerily mirroring larger political and social markers of the recent past.
