Movie Info

Ernest Pintoff--jazz trumpeter, painter, animated cartoonist, film theorist--directed his first dramatic feature, Harvey Middleman, Fireman, in 1965. Since that time, Pintoff has refused to be stylistically pigeonholed, turning out everything from comedy concerts (Dynamite Chicken) to spoofish T&A exploitation (Lunch Wagon Girls).

Audience Reviews for St. Helens

St. Helens is one of the greatest disaster movies of all time. It features a 70's style 2x4 fight, a little romance, a 30 mile an hour car chase, some honky tonk, a crazy, young scientist that no one will listen to, a crazy, old fart that cusses and owns a Pink Cadillac, sacrificed virgins... there is something for everyone in this movie AND it's based on a true story. It blows Dante's Peak away. If you like bad movies, this is one of those.

Don't listen to the dorks at IMDB, the hepcats at Amazon are calling this a cult classic.
