Product Overview

Violent storms and massive earthquakes collide in this collection of disaster movies! Starring Mother Nature at her most destructive, this exclusive DVD 2-pack includes CATEGORY 7: THE END OF THE WORLD and 10.5 APOCALYPSE: THE COMPLETE MINISERIES!

CATEGORY 7: In this hair-raising sequel to Category Six: Day of Destruction, mankind's survivial against the elements is pushed to the limits. All across the globe, an unprecedented Category 6 storm decends with greater force than could have ever been imagined. The Eiffel Tower is shredded by violent winds - the Great Pyramids reduced to piles of rubble as twisting, black funnels snake across the desert. For years scientists have been expounding theories - and warnings - of global warming trends. Now these warnings are coming true with a frightening ferocity. But though it may have created regions of volatile and extreme weather, global warming isn't what triggered the terrible temptest. The cause is unknown. As various regions of the Earth succumb to the increasingly powerful super storm, beautiful but discredited scientist Faith Clavell (Shannen Doherty, TV's Charmed) teams up with storm chaser Tommy Tornado (Emmy Award nominee Randy Quaid, Elvis) and head of FEMA Judith Carr (Gina Gershon, Face/Off), to determine the trigger and eliminate it - and that means infiltrating the storm itself. Compounding the chaos, a terrorist organization is threatening to make the situation worse. Now it's not only man against nature, but man against man as the newly-intensified Category 7 approaches - and possibly, the end of the world.

10.5 APOCALYPSE: A year ago the greatest quake in history rampaged America's West Coast. Get ready for some ground-splitting action and earth-shaking thrills, because nature isn't through. Another massive 10.5 quake tears apart the West Coast, threatening to turn the American landscape into a hellish wasteland. Seismologist Samantha Hill (Emmy winner Kim Delaney, TV's CSI: Miami) sees an even greater threat: an ever-widening fault line that's heading straight for the country's two largest nuclear reactors. If meltdown occurs, millions will die. Samantha and the American president (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Beau Bridges, TV's Stargate SG-1) agree only one man can help them - the scientist who predicted this terrifying natural disaster years before - Samantha's own father, Dr. Earl Hill (Golden Globe nominee Frank Langella, Good Night, and Good Luck), now counted as a possible casualty of a massive Las Vegas quake. Together with a crack rescue team including Brad (Dean Cain, Mayday) and Will (Oliver Hudson, The Out-of-Towners), Samantha must find her father and stop the fault from slicing uncontrollably toward millions of people and the ultimate nuclear apocalypse.

ReviewSource Variety
Review [Category] The sheer inanity of this monster-hurricane sequel to "Category 6: Day of Destruction" should quickly defuse concerns about the propriety of airing it, given its proximity to recent events. In fact, having the hero not only be the director of FEMA but the sexiest government official ever simply adds to the camp factor in this blustery two-parter, where Paris gets demolished before the opening credits and the science would be ridiculed at an "intelligent design" seminar. It's hard to fault CBS for dipping into the fertile disaster well again, but "Category 7" blows and then some...Although most of "Category 7" proves too silly to be offensive, the exaggerated destruction won't stop some conservatives from feeling slighted by the dismissive attitude toward evangelical preachers and propagandistic global-warming message. That said, Brolin is a bit of a hoot with his silvery mane and white suits, complete with his Reagan head bob...Ultimately, this is really just "The Weekend Before the Day After Tomorrow." Yet perhaps because of the cathartic release they provide, recent disaster epics have proved popular enough to beget more, with NBC's aftershock mini "10.5: Apocalypse" also due this season...Then again, the thirst for escapist mayhem is nothing new, and no one will confuse "Category 7" with CNN.

Brian Lowry, Variety [Apocalypse] As the ne'er-do-well egghead, Langella brings welcome vitality to the proceedings...
Dustin McNeill, DVDActive [Apocalypse] ...a miniseries that mixes realism and camp dialogue together to create a pretty fun experience.
Richard Scheib, The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review [Category] ...Gershon gives a professional performance...[in a film that throws] in quite a degree of barbed political commentary.
