One of the better production films by the company.
24 October 2006 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

DEJ puts out a huge amount of movies made from a low budget. Some just over a million dollars - which may be a nice income for you and I; but merely nothing for making a film...strange but true.

However most of their titles are truly bad...some laughable bad and some just outright horrible to even think it could have made it past page one of the shooting script.

This movie however is still somewhat entertaining. Though immediately you know that there is no big money put behind it...the most well known cast is Michael Ironside...

A natural disaster flick which must have been one of the best scripts to been dropped on a production office desk for DEJ and UFO film productions.

This makes the rest of their films pale in comparison.

It's entertaining, but it would be a better TV movie than a feature film...however rainy days do come from time to time and this is one that would fit right in the VCR or DVD machine on a rainy day.
