Choke Canyon (1986)
On Dangerous Ground
Nomination Year: 1993
SYNOPSIS: "Choke" is what you do when you hear the moronic premise. A scientist has discovered a way to harness a limitless source of energy from the sound waves produced by Halley's Comet -- but it will only work from one particular canyon. When the government takes over his precious canyon and (after he refuses to leave) kicks him out by force, it ruins his health and his life's work. Using his scientific knowhow to baffle and confound the troops stationed there, he returns for a one-man rampage of revenge, with predictibly violent results.

They're going to use the "ultra-high-frequency sound waves" from Halley's Comet as a limitless energy source. And it can only be done from this one canyon. I guess that's because it's the one place on Earth where the bulls**t's the thickest.
