Avalanche (1978)

(1978) dir: Corey Allen; w/ Rock Hudson, Mia Farrow, Robert Forster. No skin; no gore.

Producer Roger Corman tried to give this a big-budget varnish with some name stars, but the coating is damned thin. This entry in the Disaster Flick sweepstakes seems half-hearted at best. The script, based on all the usual gimmicks, is a feeble little thing barely adequate to string together a few scenes before they dump a truckload of Styrofoam on everyone; the rest of the running time is filled with some disjointed and undramatic rescue scenes. There’s a lot of snow, yeah, but nothing much actually happens in this flick.
