Good? Not by a long shot, but they don't make 'em like this anymore, so...
13 April 2019 | by mjohnson-96098See all my reviews

Utterly predictable Irwin Allen made for TV disaster flic does the trick for those of us who quite literally can't get enough of this stuff. Cheesy phony sets, stilted dialogue, pointless flashbacks and senseless "tension" between characters - Cave In! has it all plus Leslie Nielsen as the disgraced former cop and a soundtrack that lifts entire motifs from Bernard Herrmann's iconic score for Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo. Your mileage may vary, but I loved it.
