Description

Four years after the death of his fiancée in a volcanic eruption, vulcanologist Harry Dalton (Pierce Brosnan) is sent to investigate minor tremors in the town of Dante's Peak. He is attracted to the town's mayor, Rachel Wando (Linda Hamilton), meeting her family and staying to help celebrate the town's Founder's Day. Although Dalton discovers two corpses while visiting the hot springs in the wood, his seismic equipment does not indicate that anything is wrong. Only when he discovers that the town's water supply is contaminated with sulphur does he realise that a lethal volcanic eruption is on the way.

Synopsis
A volcanologist forlorn over the loss of his wife in the Mt. Pinatubo eruption arrives at a small Pacific Northwest town to investigate the rumblings of the local dormant volcano. Though he instantly fears the worse, he must convince the skeptical townspeople and his suspicious superiors who believe he is overreacting in the aftermath of his own tragedy. The beautiful, widowed mayor of the picturesque town believes him, however, and soon they find themselves in a fight for their lives as "Dante's Peak" blows its stack ten miles high, raining ash and fire over everything in its shadow. The Signature Collection Special Edition laserdisc includes added commentary by the director and production designer, a behind-the-scenes documentary, and an isolated score.
