When asked about the movie, actress Barbara Crampton replied:
Currently I am in Vermont at Edgewood studios working on a movie for Porchlight Entertainment called Lightning- Storm of Destruction (both companies have websites). It is my first family type drama! Stacey Keach, John Schneider and Michele Greene are also in it. I play the evil mayor of the town. A boy, who is a computer and science whiz, predicts a storm the likes of which we havenít seen in 200 years. No one believes him. It has everything. Great storms, pandemonium, humour and a lot of heart. The script is really good and I'm very excited about it!
