Capturing the birds, Harvey brings them to East Texas to a ranch that contains an aviary.
He hires paleontologist, Denise Slater (Leslie Easterbrook), to research the birds.

VH1 has ordered a reality series that would follow Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes. I might be tempted to tune in and hit the fast forward button until I see Cibrian in some sort of state of undress, but I’m not particularly interested in their tabloid drama.
Or maybe there’s an Eddie Cibrian calendar I can buy instead.

That being said, I thought it might be kind of fun to look back at some of my favorite douchebag characters of the horror genre- past and present. The only rule? They aren't the film's "big bad."

Plot: A failed attempt to harvest energy from solar flares creates a tornado in Pennsylvania that has a magnetic appetite.
Who’S It For?: If you don’t like science, this movie might be fun for you. It has tornadoes and people talking about magnets, but that’s just fluff in the larger scheme of Metal Tornado. The content of the movie is fine for families, though the amount of attention it will garner from anyone in your clan is not guaranteed.
An old roommate of mine constantly tries to defend M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening as an intentional B-movie, saying that the laughably corny film was made to be just that. Apparently, this is a defense that Shyamalan has used himself.

I think it was 1999’s Bats that killed it. Or was it Walter Hill’s Supernova? Either way, it has never been the same. He’s gone the way of Judd Nelson and C. Thomas Howell. His latest starring role in Metal Tornado is perhaps his greatest B-movie role,
The synopsis for Metal Tornado is here:
"When astronomers discovered the phenomena of magnetic tornadoes on the planet Mercury, they were amazed by the destructive power of these gargantuan solar-fueled magnetic fields…but they never imagined witnessing the catastrophic forces in their own backyards.
