5.0 out of 5 stars Best drinking game movie of all time!! May 6, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It doesn't get more awesomely bad than this. If you like movies that are so bad that you laugh out loud when you're not supposed to, this is the movie for you. Here are some examples of things to add to your drinking game:

Take a shot or chug a beer after any of these below. You might want to pick just one. Even then you may die of alcohol poisoning, so play at your own risk.

1. Someone runs in slow motion.
2. Casper Van Dien yells "Come On!!! Let's go!!!"
3. Casper Van Dien has a look of fear that instead resembles constipation
4. Casper Van Dien outruns Mother Nature...on foot!
5. You have no idea what is going on or why.
6. You see a main cast member after a half hour or so in, and you can't remember their name, and are not entirely sure if the movie ever told you.
7. You see the same location being passed off as a different location
8. You see a special effect that you could put together in the next ten minutes
9. Every time Casper Van Dien and his family get out of the car, then almost immediately get back into it.
10. The family car is careening through the driving rain, and the windshield wipers aren't on.

These are just a few. Make some up on your own as well!

1.0 out of 5 stars King Of Bad Sci Fi Movies!!! March 1, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Ah, Cas Van Dien in yet another low budget Sci Fi extravaganza. He's got to put food on the table I suppose right?

I am a huge fan of dumb low budget weather related Sci Fi flicks and this one is pretty dumb. Bad, bad acting, terrible, no wait...AWFUL script and a snot nosed teenaged kid who needs to be smacked upside the head for his snarky attitude towards his parents.
Early in the film, Van Dien, driving away from the storm after ballooning, contorts his face into what's supposed to be fearful looks, but shows up only as bad acting. I laughed. LOVE the rugged look he has though. The beard looks great and I'm not a fan of facial hair.

The thing that bugged me about this the most, was small odd scenes that were shot, and then all tossed around and edited together like a bunch of high school kids were working on a film project in their cinema class. You knew which scenes were staged so the actors would stand and stare at the CGI to be inserted later. Lol

The super storm threatens Van Dien and his on screen family, so they decide to head to higher ground in the family car (Approx 21 mins into the movie). Once there, the snarky son gets out of the car complaining and kicking up dirt, until the mom say's "John, be quiet".
Then, dad say's "I hear it too". Then, they all scramble, per verbal instruction, to get into the car "slowly" then "faster" without the film EVER explaining WHAT the stupid scary sound was. lol.... Bigfoot perhaps? Mountain Lions? Zombies? Vampires? Wait, it's daylight so no it couldn't be vamps...(Eh, unless it's a glittery Cullen}.
The entire scene is about 20 seconds long and makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. You're left scratchin' your head at that one.

The rest of the movie is filled with more cheap CGI and bad acting. That's about it.

1.0 out of 5 stars ZERO Stars April 26, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I've never rated a movie 1 star. I am a huge fan of weather related catastrophes and have watched many low budget movies with ease and enjoyment. This one was excruciating to watch. It is THE WORST one I have ever watched. The writing and script were awful, and the acting was awful. It was truly a waste of good time! Trust the low star reviews this time...this was the epitome of a waste of film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disaster of a Disaster Flick April 6, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Bad acting coupled with a worst script and special effects make this bad "B"film a "D-". The only reason it doesn't receive a complete failing grade is because the concept is entirely plausible given the idiotic track record of our government (US). I'm glad I rented it instead of buying it.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you think you know bad....... March 16, 2013
By William
Format:Amazon Instant Video
If you think you know bad........... You haven't seen this yet! Extremely poor plot, even worse acting, seriously pathetic special effects, and 90% of the movie is special effects!!!! The same building is portrayed as 10 different facilities. The suposedly heroic family is always screaming in fear and they never make a remotely intelligent decision in any circumstance. Did I mention seriously pathetic special effects and 90% of the movie is special effects??? Their special effects look like they were designed on an Etch-A-Sketch!!!!!! On a scale of 1 to 10, this ranks about 126,792,537 below zero!!!!!!!! A candidate for a Rotten Tomatoes award? No, I would say it's more of a candidate for a fresh cow pie!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible!! March 14, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My wife loves Disaster movies... This is a total disaster and not in a good way. The acting sucks, the story line... well it was like there was no script and actors made it up as they went along. I knew it was going to be a low budget film, but when nothing makes sense and the lack of a story line as it jumps to places where your thinking ... Did I miss something for them to get to this point?? We want some of the 70's disaster films like Posiden or the Airport movies. - Towering Inferno - ect. Stay away from this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars 500 MPH Storm...... March 19, 2013
Format:DVD
When an energy experiment goes haywire, massive hurricanes rip across America. A high school science teacher must get his family to safety before the hurricanes merge, creating a "hypercane" with the power to wipe the America off the map.

After Super Cyclone, I was really hesitant to buy any Asylum movie about storms and the like. Super Cyclone, in my opinion, was literally the worst Asylum movie that I've ever watched. Thankfully, I viewed 40 Days & Nights. Because of that movie, I decided to take a chance on 500 MPH Storm. It's good that I did because 500 MPH Storm turned out to be a decent movie. not quite up to the standards of 40 Days & Nights but dang near close. Nevertheless, it was an entertaining movie that kept me interested(in that B-movie sort of way). I'll admit, however, that the movie does have it's moments where I felt like getting up and switching the DVD player off.

As for how I'd rate this item, It was okay for an Asylum movie. Thank goodness that I've seen Casper Van Dien play in alot of other B-movies. That's why I stuck with it.
