Trivia

Released in Indonesia under the title of "Twister 2: Revenge of the Twister". The distributor wanted to capitalise on the popularity of Jan De Bont's "Twister" (1996) See more »

Goofs

A smart meteorologist would have not taken cover under an overpass, the reason being is that when a tornado gets close to the overpass the winds passing through it would greatly increase due to the wind-tunnel effect. See more »

This movie was certainly a unique take on the Twister theme. My question was; How did Kelly McGillis end up in no-budget, made for TV silliness. I could've expected her in a Lifetime Movie of the Week, but this seemed way off target for her. Admittedly, she did do a good job for the role she was given. Along those lines, it was a bit surprising and somewhat funny to see James MacArthur (Danno from Hawaii Five-0) in this movie. The movie itself is not Oscar material by any stretch of the imagination. But if you set your standards low enough, it's actually very amusing. It actually would've worked well as a radio program, if those type of programs were still done. If you like to watch movies that have no redeeming value other than a good laugh, this is a must.
