'Terror in the Mall' ('TitM', 1998) DVD, can also be found under the title 'Dark Rain', 'Disaster at the Mall', or 'The Mall'. 'TitM' is a thoroughly watchable & entertaining production. An interesting premise/story & good acting carry this film in an interesting mold of the Disaster/Thriller mixed genres. A tighter script, more capable direction & better editing all prevent this film from being an excellent film. You can probably expect this to be remade into a blockbuster someday under better production. This film is recommended for die-hard fans of the Disaster genre and the curious Disaster/Thriller mixed-genre viewer. If this film is interesting, definitely consider 'Hard Rain' (or 'The Flood', 1998) DVD, a more compelling production of similar genre. For similar themes consider: 'Flood: A River's Rampage' (1997); 'Nippon chinbotsu' (or 'Tidal Wave', 1973/1975); 'Dawn of the Dead' (2004); 'Tidal Wave: No Escape' (1997); 'Dawn of the Dead' (1978); 'Typhoon' (1940); 'Tsunami' (2005) TV/DVD; 'Daylight' (1996); & 'Tsunami: The Aftermath' (2006) TV/DVD. Also consider: 'The River' (1984); 'Earthquake' (1974); 'The River Wild' (1994); 'The Towering Inferno' (1974); 'The Day After Tomorrow' (2004); 'Absolute Zero' (2005); 'Nippon chinbotsu' (or 'Tidal Wave', 1973/1975); 'Meteor' (1979); 'Twister' (1996); 'Volcano' (1997); 'Category 6: Day of Destruction' (2004); 'Dante's Peak' (1997); 'The Swarm' (1978); 'The Core' (2003); & 'Outbreak' (1995).
