  • Storm Warning is easily one of the best horror movies that I've seen in a long time, which is ironic considering that it isn't really a horror movie, at least not in the traditional sense
  • When the movie first started I found myself drumming my hands on the edge of the chair, just waiting for something exciting to happen
  • From the back of the movie I thought it sounded like a combination of Hostel and Dead Calm, but the beginning was a little boring
  • Of course I know that they're going to kidnap the couple and do unspeakable things to them, so I was waiting for the twist
  • This movie lets the woman take the lead and I love that because I don't see it very often

      Storm Warning is easily one of the best horror movies that I’ve seen in a long time, which is ironic considering that it isn’t really a horror movie, at least not in the traditional sense. If a magazine were to review this movie they would probably say it falls more along the lines of torture porn than anything else. I will say that it shares some similarities to Hostel, Saw, and the movies that came after those, but this is something entirely new.

      When the movie first started I found myself drumming my hands on the edge of the chair, just waiting for something exciting to happen. From the back of the movie I thought it sounded like a combination of Hostel and Dead Calm, but the beginning was a little boring. It was so boring that I was thinking about reaching for the remote control to fast forward to something more excited. I stuck it out and boy am I glad I did.

      The movie follows a yuppie couple heading out on the water for a day of fishing. The wife, or possibly girlfriend, is French while the male lead sounds Australian. There has to be at least twenty minutes of the two of them driving to the water and then fishing in this small sailboat and that part was just about the most boring thing I ever saw. I do have to say that it


      set up some tension between the two of them, especially between her and his mother and the two of them. She seems to take more of a “do the right thing” approach, while he just does what he’s told. That should tell you something about this movie.

      As the movie first started, I didn’t care too much for the female character, but I quickly grew to like her and even root for her. She’s the first to notice the incoming storm, though he just laughs it off and acts like it isn’t a big deal. When the storm knocks them off course, I really wanted her to give him a look or at least tell him that she was right and he was wrong.

      When the two end up at a “working farm” full of redneck drug dealers, I had to roll my eyes. It’s something I’ve seen in hundreds of movies by now and I’m starting to get a little tired of it. Of course I know that they’re going to kidnap the couple and do unspeakable things to them, so I was waiting for the twist. Thankfully I did because it was a good twist.

      This isn’t the typical movie where the man takes the lead and the woman does what he says. This movie lets the woman take the lead and I love that because I don’t see it very often. She’s the one ...


      • who fights back against the kidnappers, while the man just stays in the barn and tries not to get hurt even worse. I particularly loved the scene where he wanted her to do nothing and she told him exactly why she had to do something.

        This is a great movie that is completely unpredictable and will keep you on the edge of your seat.
