Storyline

The management of a ski resort blatantly ignores a local expert's warning that a mass of snow has build up which is just waiting to come down the ski slopes in a terrible avalanche. Instead of clearing the endangered area, skiers are allowed to remain 'for the rest of the day'. Nature doesn't wait till after business hours, so the crystallized wave rushes down and crushes everything on its path, including a brand new hotel; among the guests is the architect Michael Cooper's own family, which now tries to remember the plans well enough to find the way out, as he tries to instruct the rescue operation above, where a second, even larger avalanche is expected.

Brilliant
19 March 2009 | by skippyjaminSee all my reviews

This film is brilliant. Don't get angry, just laugh your way through it. It is probably the single worst film I have ever seen (even worse than Music & Lyrics). The acting is diabolical (think Joey from Friends - Joey, not Matt Le Blanc), the plot clichéd and predictable and the effects clumsy (moving walls of snow looking suspiciously like polystyrene). The exaggerated pensive look (furrowed brow, eyes moving from side to side quickly, looking at nothing in particular) was a particular favourite. You can almost see poor Morgan Russler cringing opposite, well, pretty much everyone else.

It'll make your toes curl and possibly want to throw things, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching it just to marvel in its dreadfulness.
