An earthquake reaching a 10.5 magnitude on the Richter scale, strikes the west coast of the U.S. and Canada. A large portion of land falls into the ocean, and the situation is worsened by aftershocks and tsunami.
The West coast of Northern America suffers an unprecedented series of major earthquakes in a matter of days, puzzling seismologists, including Dr. Jordan Fisher's team. His maverick assistant Samantha Hill comes up with a theory, which they confirm on site, that a deep tectonic rift links them and is likely to sink most of California into the Pacific. The only imaginable countermeasure are subterranean nuclear explosions. Three succeed, one rather causes a new problem. Meanwhile federal and other authorities as well as various people wrestle with side-effects like landslides and cope with a huge refugees exodus.Written by
The filmmakers never received permission to use the trademarked name "Space Needle." In order to circumvent this, it is spelled "Spaceneedle" when it appears in the film. See more »
When Dr. Samantha Hill and FEMA Director Roy Nolan are placing the warheads at the six sites for detonation, the computer screen identifying the geographical location of the Washington State warhead actually has the Washington State warhead being placed and detonated in Oregon. See more »
This movie was so bad it was awesome. Ed Wood would be proud. Plan 9 from outer space now has company on the bottom. The Attack of the killer tomatoes was a more plausible movie. Think of Chris Farley explaining to Lorne Michaels how cool it would be if there was like this giant earthquake and like everything fell but scientist couldn't understand it so they nuked it, Huh wouldn't it be cool. This movie would have been better written by SNL writers. The lines were so bad I kept expecting the actors to look at the camera and wait for a rim shot,'bah dump dump'. Henny Youngman and Norm Crosby couldn't have put together more bad puns and double entendres if they tried. The shocked look on every actors face wasn't the earthquake; it was the thought of how they paid an agent to book them on this train wreck. Like any true tragedy, it was hard to avert my eyes. My middle school child laughed at the bad lines and the poorly though out plot lines. Between laughs he would say, `Now wait a minute, that can't be right'. Too late my son, we too were devoured by the `Attack of the killer earthquake'. Now quick, everyone, evacuate the west coast HAR HAR HAR.
