Into the Storm is out in UK cinemas now, and Flickering Myth TV were lucky enough to sit down with a bunch of the film’s stars. Third up (watch our first interview here and here) is our chat with director Steven Quale (Final Destination 5, Aliens of the Deep) – where we talk about the challenges of going from a pre-existing franchise to a new property, crazy practical effects and other experiences on the movie, which you can watch below.
Taking the disaster movie genre and giving it a found-footage twist, here’s the synopsis for Into the Storm:
In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.
Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, “Into the Storm” throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.
Into the Storm features a cast that includes Richard Armitage (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug), Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead), Matt Walsh (Ted), Alycia Debnam-Carey (Where the Devil Hides), Arlen Escarpeta (Final Destination 5), Nathan Kress (iCarly), Jon Reep (Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay), and Jeremy Sumpter (Friday Night Lights) and is out in UK cinemas from today.
