The Apocalypse is a 2007 American direct-to-DVD disaster film produced by The Asylum and released via its Faith Films label. It has heavy similarity to the 1998 films Armageddon and Deep Impact, however the storyline is drastically different, a recurring theme of some The Asylum's mockbusters.
The film takes place in the United States in what is presumably the present day. A large, colossal meteor the size of Texas (roughly 600 miles (970 km) in diameter) is heading towards the Earth, and threatens to wipe out the human race in a manner similar to the extinction of the dinosaurs.
Whilst the Earth begins a series of efforts to divert and later destroy the meteor, two parents – Jason (Rhett Giles) and Ashley (Jill Stapley) – search for their missing child, who is in Los Angeles, while attempting to overcome various catastrophes somehow triggered by the arrival of the meteorite, starting with a meteor impact that destroys Monterey, California.
Jason and Ashley eventually realize that it is not advanced technology that is required to find their child or divert the asteroid but faith in religion. Ashley is mortally wounded when a meteor hits the church she and Jason are taking shelter in. The daughter is eventually reunited with her father, just at the time the asteroid is about to hit. They tell each other that they will see each other soon, and the film ends with the meteor colliding with the Earth, destroying all life.

The Apocalypse was originally written as a straightforward disaster film, but buyers asked for a religious film. It was rewritten to include faith-based elements, and The Asylum created the Faith Films label to distribute it.
