What is it?

Called film disaster films those relating to air accidents. The group of films that concerns us is characterized by the fact that in them we see both how the accident occurs or how there is a danger of it happening, but it does not come true. Apart from this, the consequences of a plane crash can also be seen: investigations to clarify what has happened, passengers trying to survive, etc. It should be mentioned that, despite what it may seem, there are also comedies in disaster movies .
