Though a promising debut for its producer-writer-director, David Winning, STORM, by most standards, takes a lively premise and fritters it away. Made in Canada for a mere $72,000, this hybrid of crime thriller and DELIVERANCE-style suspense adventure is long on atmosphere but short on

solid plotting or storyline. While on a camping trip, best buddies Lowell (David Palfy) and Booker (Tom Schioler), one-time devotees of the assassination game (a pursuit game popular with college student in the early 1980s), stumble on a trio of aging bank robbers (Stan Kane, Harry Freedman,

Lawrence Elion) who've come to the woods to recover the loot from a robbery they pulled in 1946. After witnessing the murder of one of the robbers by his partners, Lowell becomes the next victim, leaving Booker alone to match wits with the hardened killers. Contrivance deflates all but the most

obvious opportunities for suspense in STORM, which has all the earmarks of a novice screenwriting effort, with its over-reliance on dreams, nightmares and flashbacks. Still, Winning shows promise as a visual storyteller.
