Quiz! As Twister turns 25... are you an expert on disaster films?

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Twister, a 90s disaster movie which saw Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton take on that most dangerous of beasts - the weather!

Hunt plays meteorologist Jo who - after seeing her father killed by a tornado as a child - becomes obsessed with chasing storms to find out more about them. Not only must she risk her life by putting herself literally into the eye of the storm, she must beat rival Jonas to find them first - and accept the help of her soon-to-be-ex-husband, weatherman Bill.

With an early performance from the late great Philip Seymour Hoffman as team member Dusty, frizzling sexual tension from Hunt and Paxton and the best special effects going in 1996, this film had plenty of reasons to blow you away.

Twister managed to take meteorology from being as dull as Michael Fish and Fred Talbot moving rain clouds around a map to becoming edge-of-your seat exciting.

Aliens, monsters and apocalypses make for pretty terrifying adversaries to Hollywood heroes trying to save the world. But the idea that a deadly disaster could be natural is perhaps the most scary of all.

In celebration of Twister's big birthday we're taking a whirl through the world of disaster movies - from Armageddon and Outbreak to Mars Attacks! and Snakes On A Plane - with this 15 question multiple choice quiz.
