Storyline

When massive volcanic storms begin to spew from the Earth, geophysicist Kate Ferris tries to convince the Department of Defense that this is no natural phenomenon. They're the result of a seismic super weapon known as the Hell Storm device; and now that it's been activated, the shockwaves it sends out will destroy major cities across the globe, killing millions. When her claims fall on deaf ears, Kate teams up with her daughter and estranged husband at the San Andreas fault line to find a way to counteract the destruction. As Kate and her family navigate the fault, they find themselves directly at the epicenter of the largest shockwave yet. Now, in a harrowing race against the clock, Kate must figure out how to stop the shockwave before its effects seal humanity's fate once and for all. Written by crixy

Not smarter than a 5th grader in SFX or screenplay.
31 January 2018 | by TheTopDawgSee all my reviews

Nick Lyon's bio reads he's an award winning director. What award lol? Camera directing was OK, but him directing his actors was terrible, and although all C-grade actors, I blame the director for the amateur directing of his actors as seen through his camera.

Even though the screenplay was atrocious by novice Blaine Chiappetta, at least the story concept from the writers was interesting, although some obvious plot issues could have been avoided. The producers should have invested in an experienced screenwriter to portray the story better.

Then there's the in-your-face terrible 1980's SFX. My 12 year old can create better effects with his cell phone apps! How hard is it in this day and age to find some SFX/VFX final-year student with skills (so many out there) that would have created 10x better effects - probably for free just to have their name in the credits? They were way too obvious and took a lot away from the film.

I know this was a low budget film, but any money should have been allocated in better areas and then maybe this would have been a 7 or an 8+. It's a generous 4/10 from me, as I've seen much worse.
