On New Year’s Eve, a tidal wave flips over a luxury ocean liner, leaving only its bottom sticking up above water. A small group of crafty survivors, led by Man-of-the-Cloth Hackman, face a number of deadly obstacles as they try to make it to the “top” of the vessel. The best-loved of the cycle of 70s disaster movies, this Irwin Allen production features a stormy score by John Williams, who also wrote the music for Earthquake and Allen’s The Towering Inferno.
