Night Of The Twisters

Review of Night of the Twisters
by Todd Smith
Posted on November 2nd, 2016
Negative 4
Overall Rating

Long before Justin Bieber, Canada had unleashed another teen celebrity on the world, Devon Sawa. He was better looking, more talented, and much less successful. While not as well known, during the mid-90s, putting him in any film almost guaranteed a bigger box office, and that was the case with Night of Twisters. This horrible, direct-to-video film, never should have made it to the U.S., but gained worldwide distribution because of it's star. Even twenty years later, the DVD is still considered a collectors item among collectors of teen idol memorabilia, and regularly sells on Amazon and eBay for upwards of $50. That being said, what makes this movie so awful, besides that it's an independent film made in Canada? Even for 1996, the special effects are laughable, this was Canada's response to Twister and not only don't the effects come close to comparison, but the story is just terrible. Obviously the story is going to center around the teen star, who sneaks out with friends to go meet girls. He's punished and has to stay home and watch his baby sister instead of going to the town event at the local high school. It's a boring night, until the town is hit by a series of tornadoes, forcing Sawa, to save the baby, save the girls, save his best friend, and then if there's time, go find his parents. The story is straight out of a kids movie, but the language and some of the devastation is not, so which is it? Is this some weird teen friendly family film or some scary disaster movie? The bottom line a lot of people love Devon Sawa, me included, that's why even today he's still getting work, but when it comes to this film, there is no real story, no real plot, it's as predictable as anything you will ever see, and the special effects make the tornado from the Wizard of Oz look more realistic. I can't believe that twenty years later the DVD costs more than the Godfather and they're still playing this thing on cable, but some things are just inexplicable.

Owner/Operator of The Ultimate Movie Review!, College student, & all around nice guy! Pretty much everyone who's ever met me either really really loves me or hate me with a passion. I believe in putting others ahead of myself, but i'm also huge on mutual respect and don't take a lot of shit from people, i have a pretty big mouth, but I don't believe in only saying or doing what's "cool". I have no problem speaking my mind or saying exactly what I feel. I like what I like and I am what I am! Like everyone else I have some things I wanna change about myself but that's the only person I'm willing to change for. If I could tell people what to say when asked about me, it would be that I am the best friend you could ever have and that I am a fair and caring person, despite the fact that sometimes I act on impulse and don't always use common sense.
