10.5: Apocalypse

10.5: Apocalypse is a 2006 television miniseries written, directed, and produced by John Lafia. A sequel to 2004's 10.5, the film follows a series of catastrophic seismic disasters (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami, and sinkholes). Critical reaction was similar to that of its predecessor, with much criticism for its scientific basis, plot, and character development.

Production

The miniseries was filmed entirely in the Montreal area, where many of the scenes can easily be linked to areas in the outskirts of the city. The Sun Valley scene was filmed at the Mont Tremblant Resort, a popular skiing resort north of the city. All of the news reporters that appeared on TV in the film are all local news reporters for various news stations in Montreal. The visual effects company that created the visual effects for the movie is called "Hybride", which is based in Piedmont, Quebec, 40 minutes north of Montreal.

Plot

The plot of the movie centers around the occurrence of a major earthquake in Los Angeles which triggered ancient fault lines (one of which may be the New Madrid Seismic Zone) throughout the entire continent eventually resulting in an earthquake which created a split in the midwest, starting in South Dakota, going through the entire continent of North America, and ending in the Gulf of Mexico, nearly destroying the nuclear plant in Red Plains, Texas; thereby splitting the United States and Canada in half.
