Tornado Videos

Many people, tornado amateurs or not, are unaware of the existence of such videotapes or suspect it but do not know where to get them. I've seen some of them, surely there are many more, so the list below will grow as I discover them.

Note that I don't sell any of these videotapes, I don't make any money with the sale of those, and I don't make pirate copies either. Moreover, I strongly advise you to buy the original tapes, would be this only to have the original case and especially, to encourage those who risk their life to show us and inform us about one of the most powerful and mysterious phenomena of nature.

Tornadoes!! The Entity - MUSIC VERSION

Approx.: 60 mins

46 tornadoes chosen over a period of 40 years, including 9 minutes with the killer Andover tornado in Kansas in 1991. I must say that these 9 minutes are awesome! Most of the sequences presented on this videotape last a long time however. There is two versions of this videotape: the musical version and the narrated version. I bought the musical version. I must say that it was not what I expected. There was a type of "new age" music that last during all the 60 minutes of the video. A music with sirens and noises of subliminal trains... a little boring! The advertisement said "Viewer Guide Included"... it is not really a guide. It explains you the formation of the tornadoes and gives you some statistics... that is not directly related to the tornadoes of the video!

Storm Force - Tornadoes

Approx.: 52 mins

New tornadoes rarely saw on tv, mainly from the 1998 season. See the arrival of a tornado capted by a store camera, sequences filmed at the time of the Nashville tornado (a tornado which I had followed live on the Net!), organized tornado chasing trips where the customers have a little bit more than they wished, etc. I liked this video very much!! Incredible!!

video de tornades 15 Twisters! Nature's Fury

Approx.: 90 mins

If you have to get one of the videotapes presented on this page, this is THE videotape you must buy. There are in fact 2 tapes in this box, for a total of 90 minutes of tornadoes filmed by professionals (Project Vortex) or amateurs. I had however already seen most of these tornadoes on TV or on the others videotapes of my collection. The image is superb and the sound is original. In the first videotape, there is a "must see" stormy spectacle with music, you'll be hypnotized by that show!!

video de tornades 15 Real Twisters

Approx.: 30 mins

How can you put a maximum of explanations and tornado footages on a 30 minutes tape; I had already seen most of these scenes on other videotapes. Do you remember the country cottage tornado "Get away from the window! Get away! Get away!!!"? There is a very long extract of this scene on that tape. But the quality of the images is very poor. The sound has also been retouched...but if you have never seen other films of tornadoes, you'll not notice that.

video de tornades 15 Tornado Watching - The tapes of Bill Gargan

Approx.: 76 mins

What you have here are the personnal footages of a tornado chaser, with all the advantages: tornadoes never seen before, impressive clouds and thunderstorms, hail, original sound, uncut scenes, with tornado scenes shown from the beginning through the end, chases, many chases, and the whole thing commented by the author. Superb!

video de tornades 15 Chasing Killer Storms

Tornado Chasers

Approx.: 50 mins.

This videotape about tornado chasers is very interesting and different from what I've seen until now. Extremely instructive! You'll see the difference between the fiction (Twister) and reality.

I found it at the Archambeault store at Laval (it was the only copy). You surely can find it elsewhere or order it at this store.
