Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.02.09] post apocalyptic movie trailer news thriller

Has Uwe Boll been replaced by a talented pod-person? Or is the world actually coming to an end? These are my thoughts as I watch the trailer for the man's new post-apocalyptic film, Storm (aka "Final Storm"). Why? Because not only does it looks well shot and well acted, but it actually sounds thoughtful. Of course, Boll didn't write the film. That was the work of Canadian writer Tim McGregor of who I've heard good rumblings. So yeah, I'm not sure what it is, but Storm certainly has an interesting quality to it and I'm curious to see it now. God, I feel dirty...

Extended Synopsis:
Biblical rain, dying animals and a blood red moon. Clearly, all is not well on the quiet farm in the countryside where Tom makes a living with his wife Gillian and their young son Graham.

Before the cable and power goes out, glimpses of weather related catastrophes on a global scale are hinted upon. Amidst these eerie signs, a soft spoken man named Silas stumbles onto their property, sick and cold. Even more disconcerting is how quiet Tom notices everything is... neighbors, cars, birds, crickets, all are nowhere to be seen nor heard.

According to Silas it's not so much as the beginning of the end, but in fact the end itself, and they've been left behind. As Tom goes about things in denial, believing that the flooding rains have simply evacuated the town, he shuts out those closest to him, allowing Silas, perhaps the only other man left alive, to grow closer to the emotionally starved Gillian and Graham. But the unsettling evidence cannot be ignored and Tom struggles with the horrifying truth: maybe it is the apocalypse. The rapture. The end of days. And they're all that is left of humanity.

As Silas slowly reveals his true colors with his murderous past, and lust for Gillian, the tension between the men builds until an explosive showdown occurs, with Tom defending his family, and fighting for their survival, and perhaps the survival of all mankind.
