5.0 out of 5 stars Loved IT! March 2, 2013
By Dscrbn
Format:DVD
Got to see this in an Independent Film Festival. It was really cool! Such a good idea- a monster that is "activated" by tornados like a werewolf is by the moon. Small Kansas town that is a tight knit community turns into a nightmare for some girls and their mom who are just traveling through and get stuck in the storm. Being from a small town in the midwest myself makes this movie seem even creepier! I just love how original it is. Can't wait to see it again, so I'm sure I will buy this DVD as soon as it is out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Natural and Supernatural Horror May 30, 2013
Format:DVD
Great independent, low budget movie. Decent writing and acting. Good tension, not a lot of silly jump scares and pointless gore you would typically expect for lower budget horror. Suggests a sequel story that I would actually watch. Entertaining and refreshing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great horror movie March 11, 2013
Format:DVD
I saw this at a film screening in Kansas City and I loved it. Tense, suspenseful, eerie, and downright creepy. All around, a great horror story, a methodical slow burn up until the chaotic ending. Artistically shot, fantastically written, all around a breath of fresh air for the horror genre.

I thought this was going to be stronger than it was, given the many reviews that maintained it as a 3 star movie, as compared to other streaming horror titles. I guess I am maintaining that by giving it a 3 but I don't think its fair to go down as there wasn't anything so wrong with it as to discard it. My 2 or under ratings are 'don't watch' warnings. This is definitely NOT a primetime viewing experience. Maybe a rainy Sat. afternoon if you have nothing to watch and are sick and in bed kinda movie. The family consists of 3 sisters and their mother, enroute to pick up their father from the airport who is returning from military service. They hole up in the wrong house when a tornado emerges. The synopsis says 'they are not alone' or some such thing but don't take that to mean a force of any kind or anything supernatural. Its more of a mutant creature feature. There was nothing spooky, creepy, menacing, etc. here for me. The atmosphere didn't work. The antagonists came off comedic to me. The ending suggests a part 2. If so, count me out.

2.0 out of 5 stars WE HAVE BIGGER FISH TO CATCH May 30, 2013
Format:DVD
Janet (Erin McGrane) is recovering from AA. She has three daughters. Alice (Emily Boresow) is the quiet introvert. Sally (Sally Spurgeon) wants to be called Sarah because it sounds more professional. Jennifer (Meg Saricks) has trouble with geometry and aspires to be a porn star or something. On their way to the airport to pick up dad, a returning soldier, they get side tracked by a tornado. They break into a farm cellar, and then become prisoners.

The interesting aspect of the film is the family of captors. The mom (Joicie Appell) was perhaps the most interesting character in the film. Had the film concentrated on this family instead, they could have made a camp classic. As it was, I was bored to tears. The action builds up too slow until about 50 minutes into the film when things pick up. Unfortunately the film stays with the boring formula.

Doesn't make a decent rental.

Parental Guide: No sex, or nudity. I don't recall any F-bombs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plesantly surprised. May 31, 2013
Format:DVD
Several friends, whose opinion I trust, recommended this movie to me. I didn't have high expectations because it is often hit or miss with low(ish) budget movies. This movie was a pleasant surprise. The story is about a woman and her three daughters on the way to pick up the husband/father from the airport. Trapped in a storm they take refuge in a cellar and encounter some...interesting "people."

One of the most impressive things about the movie was the writer/director's ability to avoid overdone cliches and tropes. The women are resilient and intelligent as well as interesting.

The acting and special effects may not have been Oscar worthy, but they were good. I didn't find myself distracted by either which is a sign of an enjoyable and carefully made movie.

This is a movie that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys horror movies and doesn't need an extravagant and overwrought Hollywood heavy weight. I'm looking forward to seeing more from the maker's of this film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yawn Maker would have been a more truthful title August 13, 2014
Format:DVD
Hmm, I think a better title would have been Yawn maker. A mother and her 3 kids take refuge in a cellar during a tornado. Unbeknownst to them the cellar is home to a family of freakish monsters. There is some originality to this film but the acting is pretty poor and the effects are minimal and not too convincing. Plus, the movie just seems to end without any real closure. Overall, a rather underwhelming effort.
The film ends on such an abrupt note, it might as well have To Be continued plastered on the screen.

Don't waste your time or money.

It was OK as a time filler. The story was not that great and the acting left a lot to be desired. I won't say not it ended, but I saw it coming. Run of the mill.
