Program Notes

The pure, raw power of Mother Nature in all her fury is unleashed. Motion picture audiences will long remember the unbelievable assortment of life, limb and property flying through the air, all focused by a fantastic musical score. Here is the most recognizable and memorable theme from this blockbuster film.

- Program Note adapted from publisher

Twister is a 1996 American epic disaster film directed by Jan de Bont from a screenplay by Michael Crichton and Anne-Marie Martin. The film stars an ensemble cast that includes Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Jami Gertz, Cary Elwes, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Alan Ruck, Todd Field, and Jeremy Davies as a group of amateur but spirited storm chasers trying to deploy a tornado research device during a severe outbreak in Oklahoma.
