The Perfect Storm (2000) was a movie about a some fishermen caught in a big storm:
After debating whether to sail through the building storm or to wait it out, the crew decide to risk the storm. However, between the Andrea Gail and Gloucester is a confluence of two powerful weather fronts and a hurricane, which the Andrea Gail crew underestimate.

This is somewhat similar to Frankenstorm, which would result from the encounter of Hurricane Sandy and a winter storm.
Is the perfect storm from the movie the same kind of storm as Frankenstorm?
