hell in the tower It was the highest grossing film of the year 1974. Without knowing it, it was the closing of an era. The following year it would be released Shark (1975) by Steven Spielberg and box office records would skyrocket. But ironically, Spielberg’s film is also classified as a film within the catastrophe genre, only that it cost much less and raised much more, and of course it has a much more personal visual style. A dozen stars would no longer be needed and the viewers would also change.

As for the Twin Towers that were the inspiration for the two novels and this title, they would be demolished in a terrorist attack that would mark the history of humanity. No screenwriter would have dared to think something so terrible. hell in the tower it denounces corruption and is dedicated to those who fight fire, but at the end of the day its aim is above all to create a great show for the big screen. That goal was more than achieved and that is why it became a classic.
