I just love the way cheap film producers see a new film coming and quickly hash together a 'suspiciously similar' flick. This came out on TV around the same time as Twister was arriving at cinemas. Some appallingly cheap effects, bargain basement acting and a 'pilfered' plot. Still, when you can see the cut out lines around the tornados you just know you're gonna love this film. Bruce Cambell takes a break from shooting dead people in the face and instead avoids spiralling winds by the skin of his teeth time after time after time after time after time after time after time. Go, on - get drunk and have a laff!
