Synopsis
The Poseidon, an ocean liner bigger than the Queen Elizabeth and Mary combined, is charting its course on New Year's Eve when just after midnight a 90' tidal wave hits. It is the last thing that everyone onboard sees before drowning - the Poseidon is turned upside down, with only a handful of survivors. The lucky few take a journey through the bowels of the ship in an attempt to survive.
