Still reeling from the devastating Sharknado, mother nature decides to kick us while we’re down in the new disaster flick, Into The Storm. The film follows a group of townspeople as they attempt to survive against a deadly onslaught of tornadoes. Even with The Walking Dead’s Sarah Wayne Callies’ crisis management expertise, the town of Silverton is still hopelessly unequipped for the apocalyptic conditions they’re facing. Obviously their Boy Scout troop didn’t have the budget to practice fire tornado preparedness like the rich kids over in Goldton. Into The Storm careens into theaters August 8, but The A.V. Club has an opportunity for you to attend an early screening in downtown Chicago on August 4. For a chance to receive event passes simply follow the link here and enter the RSVP code AVCLUBMJE0.

“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.”
