Rating < 50%

Watched two movies. Go on, try to guess what their score on IMDB is... any hints?

The Maze is a straight to video release that would have been over-priced if it had been straight to free digital download. Five youngsters decide to "break into" (read: move a thin chain across the entrance) to a corn maze, which can basically be considered a building with thin corridors to run down when chased by a killer. Of course there is a killer, so of course they all split up and then are killed. Except the movie runs out half-way through it, so they helpfully stick the sequel on which reveals who was behind it all. There's an interesting plot point involving what items we know are on a dead body that get passed around, although I'm not sure it aligns correctly (as in who has it) at the end. Aside from that minor point, a complete waste of time.

Stonehenge Apocalypse is one of the SyFy movies of the minute, starring such Canadian actors as Misha Collins (Supernatural), Torri Higginson (Stargate Atlantis) and Brent Stait (Andromeda). The plot involves some jackass activating Stonehenge, so we are treated to Stonehenge as a setting, as shot in Canada. There's a lot of rubbish about "earth energy grid", and we get to find out what Stonehenge is really for. Yeah, it is silly, but... it is more fun than The Maze was, so I'm saying this was the better movie (and its rating is higher than The Maze's).
