Storyline

An evil nasty doctor named Dr. Ironside who is trying to develop a source of geothermal energy and doing so he starts a volcanic rift under the Big Apple! And now that a volcano is beneath New York City seems unlikely yet...nothing else can explain the bizarre tremors and terrifying explosions wreaking havoc on the city! But Matt, his geologist ex-wife, and a team of unlikely heroes have only a few sticks of dynamite and a prayer to rescue the city from volcanic! Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

The footage of the disaster of the volcano is recycled news footage of the 9/11 attacks aftermath. See more »

Goofs

A man opens the door of the house and lava, which is obviously well over five feet deep, flows. This is impossible, as, given the temperature of lava, the wood framed house would have caught fire as soon as the first bit of lava touched it. See more »

Quotes

Neil Kavanagh: I have reason to believe, sir, that a volcano has been inadvertently initiated.

Just Plain Awful
26 February 2006 | by Moe23See all my reviews

Its kind of a cross between "Volcano" and "Armageddeon". A volcano erupts in a major city and the fate of millions lies in the hands of a team of ditch-diggers. This movie was just plain awful, even for a Sci-Fi movie. The special effects were pathetic and the acting was even worse. The very plot of the movie is lost on me and the movie is just impossible. I am a huge fan of B-movies and I am very entertained by some of the worst movies of all time. This movie, however, is just plain stupid. I expected more out of Michal Ironsides (Starship Troopers) and Alexandria Paul. The cast was decent, but the plot, special FX and acting were terrible.
