CATEGORY 7, THE END OF THE WORLD

VIEW IMaGES

Full Synopsis

In this hair-raising sequel to Category Six: Day of Destruction, event television is pushed to the max as mankind’s survival against the elements is pushed to the limits…

Across the world an unprecedented Category 6 storm descends. The Eiffel Tower is shredded by violent winds. Mount Rushmore crumbles under hurricane-level pressure. The Great Pyramids are reduced to pile of rubble as black funnels snake across the desert. Unprecedented “tornado alleys” develop across two continents And when a bizarre plague of frogs terrorises New York’s Museum of Natural History, religious zealots compete with scientists for a rational explanation. For years, scientists have been expounding theories—and warnings—of global-warming effects. Finally someone is listening: Judith Carr (Gina Gershon, Face/Off), newly appointed head of FEMA. It’s disaster, Code Yellow, as the “storm on steroids” is only just beginning to rend the earth.

The warming effect is creating new regions of extreme weather, but something else is triggering it—something that when combined with record-breaking heat waves will literally create explosions in the sky. With time running out, the beautiful, but discredited scientist Faith Clavell (Shannen Doherty, Charmed), teams up with storm chaser Tornado Tommy (Emmy nominee Randy Quaid, Elvis), and Judith to figure out what that trigger is and terminate it. But that means infiltrating the storm itself, venturing into the roiling black clouds that blanket the earth. As the country finds itself at its most vulnerable, the government is suddenly victimised by a threat on land as an insidious organisation wields its own more human terrors. Now it’s not only man against nature, but man against man as the Category 7 approaches. So, too, does the possibility of the end of the world.

Upping the ante in special-effects and featuring an all-star cast that includes Emmy nominee James Brolin (The Reagans), (Golden Globe nominee Robert Wagner, Austin Powers), Emmy winner Swoosie Kurtz (Sisters), and Emmy winner Tom Skerritt (Picket Fences), you’d better hold on tight. Category 7: The End of the World is an awe-inspiring, earth-shattering miniseries superstorm of a movie that really delivers.
