When Paul, Terry, Stan, Nancy and Greg arrive in Dante's Peak, Nancy remarks that the town is like Pompeii . A nod to the historic volcanic disaster in 79AD which the ancient Roman city Pompeii had been destroyed in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and 11,000 people in the city had been killed. The 79AD volcanic disaster of Pompeii was brought to the big screen as Pompeii (2014) starring Kit Harrington and Keifer Sutherland. See more »

Saw this a video sale this week for a $1. Wifey was stoked as her favourite movie genre is "natural disasters".
The movie revolves around volcano expert Harry (Brosnan), who decides to go and take a look at a volcano in a small US town where there seems to be some minimal activity. He is expecting this just to be a routine check, but once he starts taking some PH tests, things don't look so good. Then he finds some dead bodies in a hot spring and things look decidedly worse. He warns the town Mayor (Hamilton) the old volcano looks like she's gonna blow and she should look at evacuating the town ASAP. Just before this is about to happen, Harry's boss rocks into town, playing the time-old boss who doesn't take heed of the advice of someone smarter than him. Will the evacuation be too late? Will Harry and the Mayor get romantically involved? Will Harry again be tormented by a volcano? Will Nanna survive? Will the end be predictable? See it and find out.
