Storyline

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?

Goofs

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 »

How could they film this rubbish in New Zealand?
30 November 2005 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The only reason to watch this film (aside from the beautiful scenery of my home country) is for NZ actor Antony Starr, who moves on to bigger and better things with the fantastic TV Series "Outrageous Fortune". The rest of the film is terrible. I mean, 'Terror Peak' is obviously computer graphics, for there is no giant volcano that close of Auckland, and if there were, and it was erupting like in this film, they would need to evacuate more than just the local village which is what happens in this film.

Lynda Carter is painful to watch as a retired vulcanologist who has come to NZ for a honeymoon with her new husband and her daughter, who funnily enough is played by a New Zealand actress, Emily Barclay. The poor girl fails to pull off an American accent. Another NZ actor, Peter Elliot of "Shortland Street" fame plays a Scotsman. Go figure - that is if you want to waste your time.
