This movie is about a mother (Alice Maguire) and her three daughters who are trying to get to the airport to pick up Mr Maguire, the daughter's father. But on the way there is a tornado warning and the trip starts to get too dangerous so they stop on the highway and run to a house to take shelter. Nobody answers the door so they all get in to the cellar to wait out the storm. But then they discover that there is somebody in the house above them, and then they become trapped in the cellar. But there's more to worry about than the impending storm, and their lives become endangered, by something that's not normal. Written by Michael Hallows Eve

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 »

Damn it is hard at times to write a review for a great film, and I find it even harder to write one for this awful awful film. It sort of sounded OK, but it took all about 10 minutes work out where this one was going to.

The music score is terrible, the so called special affect would have cut it 50 years ago, but it is 2012 after all, and damn I expect more from films these days then this rubbish.

I think the story it self is not bad, but the acting is as wooden as a plank! and it just feels wrong, cheap came to mind, but thats even a complement! So to sum it up, unless you have nothing better to do, damn no, don't waste your time on this, life is just to short! A very very solid 1 out of 10
