This week, the oddest DVD to appear on release lists is:
“End of the World – 2012 Apocalyptic Prophesies and Inexplicable Phenomena”
Conspiracy theorists can celebrate a documentary bonanza Tuesday with the release of a nine-disc DVD collection of doomsday prognostications and weird occurrences titled “End of the World – 2012 Apocalyptic Prophesies and Inexplicable Phenomena.”
The off-the-wall collection includes 24 documentaries examining various soothsaying myths, forecasts of the future and apocalyptic pronouncements. Included in the films are interviews with academics, scientists and various leaders in their futuristic fields.
Among the eerie, conspiracy-leaden topics covered are: Were Nostradamus’s 2012 predictions correct? Did the ancient Mayans have knowledge that modern science has yet to prove? Is the government conducting experiments and covering it up? Are UFO sightings on the rise? Why have crop circles never been adequately explained?
These and other nagging questions of the occult and unexplained have proven evergreen topics for sci-fi fans and pop-cult theorists and have fueled a thriving traffic of speculation on TV, in film and over the Internet.
The year 2012 seems to have special significance among theorists of oddities, based on an ancient calendar of Central America’s Mayan culture and on the predictions of Nostradamus.
A sampling of other topics included in the documentary collection: “The Mayan Prophecies Revealed,” “The Hidden Cross of Egypt,” “The Indigo Children of the UFO,” “Secret Order of the Knights Templar,” “9/11 and the New World Order,” “The Secret UFO Files,” “Black Operations: E.T.s and Time Travel,” “Ancient Aliens: The Origins of Mankind,” “The Crop Circles Revealed” and more.
“End of the World – 2012 Apocalyptic Prophesies and Inexplicable Phenomena” is not rated and runs 2,249 minutes on nine discs. It’s being released by Mill Creek Entertainment.
