Gallery: 9 Spectacularly Disastrous Disaster Movies

The 90s had a thing about volcanoes. This film and the equally disastrous Dante’s Peak had people fleeing from hot liquid magma as fast as their little legs could carry them. However, rather than featuring the pretty faces of Pierce Brosnan and Linda Hamilton, Volcano featured the not-quite-so-pretty Tommy Lee Jones, already doing his grumpy old man impersonation. Unfortunately for Volcano, the terror of rushing lava is somewhat lessened when the lava fails to rush – it moves along at the speed of cold molasses, and if people would stop screaming and flailing they might be able to just calmly walk away.
