'Into The Storm' director Steven Quale, producer Todd Garner and professional storm-chaser Reed Timmer unveil the truth about the tornadoes the film is based on in a short featurette.
'In this movie, this storm cell hangs around for four hours over one particular area so there's a number of different tornadoes that occur during that system', says Todd. One of those types is the Wedge Tornado which Reed explains is ' wider than it is tall and usually the strongest tornadoes', and Todd describes as an 'enormous machine of destruction that can have wind speeds as high as 300mph that can just rip buildings and roofs off like they're Styrofoam'. The movie is out on Blu-Ray and DVD on December 15th 2014.
