On Christmas Eve, a dark star causes massive earthquakes and other natural disasters that threaten to destroy the world.
12 Disasters of Christmas (alternatively written as 12 Disasters of Christmas; released on DVD as 12 Disasters) is a 2012 television film directed by Steven R. Monroe. The film takes place in a small town called Calvary where an ice storm puts everyone on notice. Just before Jaceys (Magda Apanowicz) grandmother dies, she gives a mystical ring to her telling her that she is the chosen one.
Just in time for the joyous holiday season, this film connects the ancient Mayan prophecy of worldwide destruction at the end of 2012, and the iconic holiday song, The 12 Days of Christmas. But there is hope: a father learns that his daughter is really the "Chosen One" who, alone, can stop further catastrophe - if he can stave off the lunatic townspeople blaming her for the community's destruction.

12 Disasters of Christmas premiered on the SyFy network on December 8 at 9PM Eastern. 12 Disasters of Christmas became SyFys most watched television film on its premiere since February 2012.
The film received negative ratings, but critics have noted that the film is entertaining despite its lack of quality. The New York Times stated that "the movie gets an F in most of the traditional critical categories. Dialogue? F. Coherence? F. But in terms of serving as a counterweight to the syrupy fare that clogs almost every other network at this time of year, this ridiculous mess earns an A+. The New York Daily News gave the film one star out of five, opining that "some bad movies just bore you, while others create a perverse fascination, an aura that keeps you watching in the hope they will never get better. "The Twelve Disasters of Christmas" does not. It stays true to the path on which it embarked, seemingly never troubled for a second by concern for trivial matters like, oh, dialogue or plot." The AV Club gave the film a D rating stating "...comes closer to so-bad-its-good territory than any SyFy Original Movie in recent memory."
