Melanie Fraser has a problem. Her mother, Dr. Janet Fraser, thinks that she can bond with her stepfather by accompanying mom and dad on a simple business excursion to see if a small tour guide company is a good investment for clients. The fact that the trip will take the threesome to the site of a volcano in New Zealand is nothing for Melanie to worry about. Old "Mount Extreme" is inactive and mom is a former volcanologist who should know a safe hill when she sees one. So what's the problem? Answer: somebody forgot to tell the gods in charge of lava control that they were about to host a family therapy session. Mount Extreme decides to live up to its name just in time to make Melanie's quality time with the folks seem like a big mistake. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


SFX issue with the opening sequence in which we see "toxic fumes" emanating from the volcano; however, the fumes cascade downwards, which would be very unlikely in a heated environment like a volcano; it is obvious that the "fumes" in question are Liquid C02. See more »

Cheesy disaster thrills with a former Wonder Woman
25 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Former WONDER WOMAN actress Lynda Carter finds herself down on her luck in this makeshift disaster movie about a family caught in and around an erupting volcano. The only thing this film has going for it is that it's a Kiwi production, so the New Zealand scenery looks fantastic and there are various Maori supporting characters in the story for novelty value. Other than that it's business as usual.

Most annoyingly, TERROR PEAK plays it safe throughout and none of the peril sequences convince because you know everybody's going to make it. The usual gamut of poor special effects and worse acting make this an entirely familiar outing for the genre, and even Carter's worthwhile efforts in the acting department can't help it. What hurts it the most is that Carter's screen daughter is given the most obnoxious personality ever and has such a prominent role in the proceedings; big mistake. Plus there's an odd timbre to the audio which makes all the voices sound too-loud and theatrical.
