“Only a lunatic would build a world class resort on a ticking time bomb of molten earth.”
 
On this show we do the deep dive on the shallowest volcano movie ever made, SKYFIRE (2019).

We’re joined by disaster movie aficionado Fred Andersson to discuss spectacular set-pieces, one dimensional characters, and a classic exploding helicopter.
