When Time Ran Out... (Lalo Schifrin)


A volcano, long thought to be dormant, turns out to be not so dormant, which is bad news for the guests of the resort hotel nearby. Leonard Maltin's Movie and Video Guide put it best in referring to this as When Ideas Ran Out.... A good cast goes slumming in this final nail in the disaster movie genre coffin.

Lalo Schifrin wrote a number of terrific scores in his career. In my mind, the late 70s and early 80s were a peak period. This score features some great suspense cues and a fine main theme.
