Fifteen things you might not know about Twister

Twenty three years ago on the 10th May (last month), 1996 summer blockbuster, Twister premiered in movie theaters/cinemas. A trailer for the film can be watched below.

With that being said, here’s a look at fifteen things you might know about Twister – listed below.

Twister was the first film on DVD: Way before the tech-film enthusiast knew what a DVD was, Twister was being pressed onto the format. On March 25th 1997, Twister was the first-ever cinematic release on DVD. However, a teaser trailer and cast bios were the only special features included on it.

Twister was the last film on HD-DVD: Best way to go! Having paved the way for the DVD format, Twister would prove to be the swan song for its HD counterpart. The HD-DVD version of Twister was released in 2008. However, this would be the last cinematic release on the format. HD-DVD lost the battle to Blu-Ray

Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton were blinded: This was something we didn’t even though! Suffice to say the stars of Twisters suffered for their work. The duo were temporarily blinded by bright electronic lamps used to reduce the exposure and had to wear specific glasses in order to recover.  Hunt and Paxton had to have hepatitis injections after filming in a particularly unsanitary ditch1. Also! Hunt was reportedly left concussed after hitting her head in a stunt.

1: Referring to the scene which you can watch in full below.

The script of Twister was improved aka tidied up by the man behind Marvel Avengers films, Joss Whedon: Whedon, the man behind the Avengers films and more, also had a hand in Twister… However, he didn’t receive an official credit for his efforts. Whedon was brought in twice in order to improve aka tidy up the script.

The original crew of Twister revolted: This one shocked us when we discovered this. Suffice to suggest that there was much drama off screen as there was on the screen. Approxminetly five weeks into filming, the crew of Twister left the set in protest of director Jan De Bont’s handling of the shoot, which included him knocking over a camera assistant…Why did he do that? Reportedly the camera assistant missed a cue. Replacement cinematographer Jack N. Green also suffered…How? A hydraulic house programmed to collapse was mistakenly activated with him inside it. Ouch! We’re definitely going to read up more that particular incident.

Twister was recognised at both the Oscars and the Razzies: It’s no surprise that Twister’s technical team were recognised at the Oscars, picking up nominations for both Best Visual Effects and Best Sound. Actress Jami Gertz and writers Michael Crichton and Anne-Marie Martin weren’t so celebrated to say the least. Gertz picked up a Razzie nod for Worst Supporting Actress, the writers picked up the Razzie for Worst Written Films grossing over one hundred million dollars.

Twister became the source of an urban legend: In 1996, an Ontario, Canada drive-in movie theatre was destroyed by a Tornado just hours before it was due to screen Twister. Ooo eh! This above mentioned event got twisted into an urban legend in which the movie movie theatre was playing the film at the same time the Tornado struck.

The sound effects in Twister came from an interesting library: Suffice to say the flying cow is one of the most reconisgeable images from Twister, HOWEVER this wasn’t the only time that animals were used during the production. The sounds of rumbling thunder and roaring winds that you hear in the film were natural but not the natural you think…The sounds that you hear are that of animals, including a camel’s moan slowed down and play backwards.

The tagline for Twister was nearly ‘It sucks’: The producers of Twister initially had the tagline ‘It sucks’ in mind for the film. However, realising that a tagline like that may give the film’s critics more ammunition than they needed. Thankfully, the producers changed it to ‘the dark side of nature’.

Simple heading this time, life imitated art: Fourteen years after Twister’s release, a real Tornado struck the farmhouse where several scenes were filmed. The owner of the property, an ex-Oklahoma state senator later commented on how much the Tornado “echoed” the one in the film.

The trailer for Twister contains a shot not in the film: We’ll let you try and work out which one it is, let us know which shot you think it is in the comments.

Twister was the second highest-grossing film of 1996: 1996 saw the release of 101 Dalmations, The Rock and the first Mission Impossible. So… Suffice to say it’s impressive that Twister managed to outgross them all with a tally of almost five hundred million dollars. HUGE NUMBERS! However, that number still diminishes to the one film that did beat Twister at the box-office in 1996 – Independence Day (eight hundred and seventeen million dollars).

OH NUTS! Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s genitals made an appearance in Twister: According to reports, the cinematic release of Twister showed Phillip Seymour Hoffman accidentally expose his genitals for a split second in the scene in which he sits on a lawn chair and lifts his leg in the air. Producers of Twister were made aware of the error, the flash of Hoffman’s genitals was edited out of both the VHS and DVD releases.

There are several hidden film references in Twister: The oil truck that is seen flying around in the last scene of the film bears the same name2 as the company in James Cameron’s underwater film, The Abyss.  

2: ‘Benthic Petroleum’ in case you can’t remember.

Of course! We can’t forget ‘Dorothy’. You can find out more on Dorothy here, however Dorothy is same name as the leading character in The Wizard of Oz (TWOO). Suffice to suggest this isn’t the only time TWOO is referenced in Twister.

In Twister’s opening scene, the dog you see with Young Jo is the same breed3 as Toto in TWOO. Also, just before the Tornado hits her house, Aunt Meg is watching classic Judy Garland classic.

3: Cairn Terrier in case you can’t remember or didn’t know.

Twister features two cast members who would later appear on LOST: Viewers of LOST may already know that two Twister cast members would later show up on the island… Sean Whalen, who play Rabbit’s driver Alan, would appear on the show as plane crash survivor, Frogurt in three episodes. Jeremy Davies, who played Laurence in Twister, would appear on LOST as Dr. Daniel Faraday. It would appear his was a significant role.

Reported strong Tornado causes extensive damage in Greenville, Texas

Update: According to the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth, Texas, the damage caused in the town of Greenville was caused by straight-line-winds and not a Tornado.

Original post: There is extensive damage in the town of Greenville, Texas following a reported strong Tornado that struck last night. It’s also been reported that it was rain-wrapped.

The reported Tornado swept through the town just before 6:00pm, causing extensive damage to buildings (churches1), leaving a trail of downed trees and power lines.

1: It’s suffice to suggest a number of churches were having services or bible study last night. This was the situation at Highland Terrace Baptist Church on the outskirts of the town. Families were gathered with their pastors in the church when a portion of the roof was ripped off by the reported Tornado.

Photo gallery of damage caused can be found below.

As the photo gallery above illustrates, multiple buildings downtown Greenville suffered extensive damage. Initial reports suggested the downtown area was the hardest hit.

Video of the damage caused by this reported Tornado in the downtown area can be found below.

Multiple law enforcement agencies have been working together to keep some areas of the town blocked off that have downed power lines and polls.

The roof of one business was completely ripped off, ending up crumpled in the street. A classic car business had its glass windows blown out.

The initial call for first responders was significant, due to damage affecting such a densely populated area. There were no reports of serious injuries thankfully.

Should photos or video of the reported emerge, we will post them. Find more of our articles on Tornadoes that have struck the state of Texas here.
