Joe versus the Volcano (1990)

Film details


Joe, a man devoid of personality and a hypochondriac to boot, is told by his doctor that he has a brain tumour and only six months to live. A multi- millionaire offers Joe a deal: if he will be a human sacrifice to a volcano on a small island from which the man wants the mineral rights, Joe can live a life of luxury and adventure for two weeks.
