* Many SciFiChannel [[MadeForTVMovie Original Movies]] tend to be disaster flicks. Why they go for the genre with such a meager special effects budget is unknown, but it may have to do with Canadian and German tax credits.

* ''When Time Ran Out'' (1980): A volcano in the South Pacific threatens a resort, an oil rig, and a volcano observatory. The final nail in the coffin for the first cycle of disaster films, and Creator/IrwinAllen's final theatrically-released film. Even the cast (which included Paul Newman, Jacqueline Bisset, and William Holden) hated it.

* ''NihonChinbotsu'' (''Japan Sinks'') (1973): Arguably the most successful Japanese disaster film ever, it was followed up by a highly subpar remake in 2006. Subjected to a particularly bad ImportationExpansion when it was released in the US. Based on a book by the great sci-fi novelist Sakyo Komatsu, who is mostly known in the Anglosphere for the numerous {{Shout Out}}s he gets in work by Creator/OsamuTezuka. See below for its plot.
