SIX MILLION TONS OF ICY TERROR!
A winter wonderland becomes a nightmare of destruction when an avalanche smashes into a ski resort and a holiday vacation becomes a struggle for survival. Once producer Irwin Allen became Hollywood’s master of disaster in the ‘70s by cranking out spectacles like THE TOWERING INFERNO and THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE, legendary cult producer Roger Corman (DEATH RACE 2000) finally decided to produce his own disaster film, making his own unique brand on the genre.
Rock Hudson (GIANT, SECONDS) plays David Shelby, the owner of a ski destination who rebuffs warnings that his resort is built on dangerous ground. Visiting him for the lodge’s opening are his mother (Jeanette Nolan, MACBETH), his estranged ex-wife (Mia Farrow, ROSEMARY’S BABY) and hundreds of guests and media members. Directed by TV veteran Corey Allen (THUNDER AND LIGHTNING) and co-starring the late great Robert Forster (JACKIE BROWN) as Hudson’s rival.
