Twister Crap
1 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen worse than Twister Valley, but I did think that it was an awful movie with little if anything to redeem it. Visually, once you get past the choppy editing and the dully-lit production values, what really sank Twister Valley were the tornado effects, which are terribly cheap in look and perhaps even the worst tornado effects I've seen. The music fails to give any life or even tension to the film, likewise with the muffled sound effects. Add to that clichéd characters(even for Lifetime), stilted writing and a story that is predictable and maudlin and you have a furthermore bad movie. But the lack of atmosphere, suspense or tension also hindered it, as well as the acting, which is unnatural and not even showing any real sense of fright or any other emotion to what's happening. All in all, awful. 2/10 Bethany Cox
