A decades old folk tale surrounding a deranged murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day, turns out to be true to legend when a group defies the killer's order and people start turning up dead.
The desperate love affair between a young Samoan chief and an American painter, against the will of her father. Amid this man-made tension comes a hurricane so devastating, the lives of the lovers and the entire island are imperiled.
Hey, I don't know why folks are being so unkind to this modern American classic. It's a Roger Corman production, after all! I mean, it doesn't pretend to be a statement of man's inhumanity to man, like The Towering Inferno or The Poseidon Adventure does. I found this to be an unpretentious, atmospheric (late 70s Mork & Mindy down vests, shaggy disco hair), and efficient disaster pic. No enormous cast of moneygrubbing hasbeen actors weighting it down-- just a bunch of bearded ski instructors and feathered-hair ski bunnies to bury beneath mountains of styrofoam boulders. Plus, it's a brisk 90 minutes. I liked the wintery atmosphere and could swear I spotted Eric Heiden having a drink at the bar. 6/10.
