After night falls, characters and/or the camera view the volcano from various angles - some 90 degrees removed from one another - but are always seeing the same side of the volcano with the same patterns of lava flow (since it is actually a piece of stock footage matted into the frame). See more »
They never had a chance! The tidal wave was on top of them before they ever saw it!

Put this together with "Beyond the Poseidon Adventure", and you have a side-splitting laugh-a-thon!! LOL
Another funny film by Irwin Allen. This one is a hoot to watch. I really like the blue screen effect whenever the lava is shown--lol. If it has Shelia Matthews in the cast, you can be sure that it is going to be a funny film, especially if it is a drama. The ending with the volcano is hilarious--I did not know that volcanos could shoot a fireball that far away and still hit the target head-on!! Impressive. Sort of like scenes from "Bird of Paradise" meets "Diamond Head" were taken and spliced together and then had a few more ingredients added. All that was missing was the sacrificial virgin--but then, maybe that is why the volcano exploded--LOL. Not a movie to be missed for laughs!!
