A relaxing weekend by the sea becomes a battle for survival when a killer hurricane strikes. Tidal waves over thirty feet high and thunderous, destructive winds batter the coastline. An all-star cast fight overwhelming odds to escape the incredible destructive power of the hurricane. Using actual footage of hurricane "Camille" and a plethora of special effects, "Hurricane" is a pulse pounding vision of nature's savage fury! Written by
The dates given for the hurricane (according to the teletype notices) are Monday and Tuesday, August 17th and 18th. Those exact dates match with an actual Hurricane Hilda, which struck in 1964; and also coincide with the landfall of category 5 Hurricane Camille in 1969, on a Sunday-Monday. See more »
I really enjoyed this movie, being the weather geek that I am!!! The cast in the movie was outstanding, I mean Frank Sutton, Michelle Learned, WILL GEER!!! I guess from my standpoint the actual hurricane footage from Camille was just unreal, giving us a glimpse of what a Category 5 situation would be like with winds of 190 MPH. The first time I actually saw it was when I was a kid on TV (weather geek then too!!). I haven't seen it in a few years and would actually like to know if ANYONE would know how to obtain a copy of it. DVD would be preferred if possible but VHS would be fine too. I know Blockbuster actually had it for rent for awhile. Once again, if anyone loves weather I would highly recommend it if they get a chance to see it!!!
