The Future Tornadoes Want: Twister

Jo and Bill approach an F5 twister in Jo’s truck.

When Jan de Bont released Twister in May of 1996, he probably thought he was being sneaky. He probably didn’t expect anyone to figure out that he’d made a horror film in which the monster represents the death of heteronormativity in the American nuclear family structure. He probably thought he got away with it. Well, I’ve got bad news for you, Jan…

Twister is one of my all-time favourite comfort food disaster movies, and I absolutely love Sarah Gailey’s take on it.
