This film also has one of my favorite Michael J. Lewis's scores, only available as a "promo."

The music score by MICHAEL J LEWIS was fantastic hyper and stirring during the last 15 or so minutes along with the end credits theme. Really sets the mood for this film with a nervous effective vibe to it.The film pretty much came and went on it's theatrical release. I caught it when it opened in New York. much underrated and was basically ignored by mainstream critics during it's day. But seeing the film again it touches a deep emotional cord and I think why it has been pretty much obscure is because people are afraid of it.It really is the apex of a true disaster film.

Special effects by the great Brian Johnson.
