Dante’s Peak

In Films

A volcanologist arrives at a countryside town recently named the second-most desirable place to live in America, and discovers that the long-dormant volcano, Dante’s Peak, may wake up at any moment.

Director Roger Donaldson alternates treacly interpersonal stuff with panic, adjusting your brain chemicals with pharmacological precision.

Dante's Peak might take some liberties with the science but the film remains an edge-of-your-seat thriller 25 years after its release.
