Rob and his wife Pia decide to rent a small boat and do some fishing but when the weather suddenly turns bad they get lost on the water. When night falls, they go to shore and head off into the woods until they find an ambandoned and dirty house where they seek shelter from the rain. All good and nice but then it appears the house isn’t abandoned as the owners return and take Rob and Pia as prisoners…
Sound and Vision:
The image is quite dark and lacks some shadow detail. Also there’s some minor grain present.
The sound is mediocre with the surround speakers being only used for some environment sounds and music. Dialogues are clear and nicely positioned at the center speaker.
Storm Warning is made by Jamie Blanks who previously also brought us Urban Legend and Valentine. Although the first wasn’t too bad, Valentine should give you an idea of what to expect, but even then you should tone down your expectations. The movie is boring as hell and at no time will the tension bring you to the edge of your seat. Instead, you’ll probably wonder whether you’re watching some nature documentary about a place where it rains all the time. For a horror movie there’s an abundant lack of gore so even on that front fans of the genre won’t find their thing. We’ve seen a lot of low budget movies that have similar plots and this one doesn’t manage to stand out in any way.
