Under the Volcano is a 1984 film directed in Mexico by John Huston written by Guy Gallo with Albert Finney, Jacqueline Bisset, Anthony Andrews and Katy Jurado heading the cast. The film received Academy Award nominations for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Albert Finney) and Best Music, Original Score (Alex North). It is based on the semi-autobiographical 1947 novel by English writer Malcolm Lowry.

Remaining faithful to Lowry's work, Huston's film tells the story of Geoffrey Firmin, an alcoholic former British consul in the small Mexican town of Quauhnahuac (recognizably Cuernavaca) on the Day of the Dead in 1938.
