Goofs:
Continuity: The shot through the windshield of Deputy Carr driving his patrol car, show that the windshield wipers are having a difficult time keeping up with the massive amount of rain coming down, yet the shots from inside the car as he pulls up to the girls car sitting in the ditch shows almost no rain coming down at all. In fact the road barely even looks wet.See more »

Just Plain Stupid, 6 July 2012
Author: billcr12 from United States

Where do I begin. A woman is at an A.A. meeting talking about four months of sobriety and how she is waiting for her soldier husband to return from overseas. Next up is continuous TV and radio headlines warning of the tornadoes heading towards Kansas. So what does recovering mom do; take a drink; no, I wish she would have. Instead she gathers up her three high school age children for a ride to the airport, right into the storm of the century. While piloting the family Subaru Wagon, they encounter a hail storm. The former drinker looks in the mirror and screams at the tunnel of wind headed toward them. They run from the car to the closest house, and when no one answers their calls for help, they break into a cellar. The winds knocks a tree down over the entrance and they are trapped. The youngest daughter tries to squeeze through a small window and is bitten by a strange creature. The wound looks like pellet holes in her arm. A lot of screaming and bad acting follows. A local cops mother lives in the house and she looks a lot like Barbara Bush; it's the only unintentional comic relief. She has somehow begat some kind of Alien like offspring which terrorize the mom and three girls throughout Nailbiter. It is simply awful. Avoid this turkey like the plague.
