On an archaeological dig in Asia, Dr. Roger Bentley find a cuneiform tablet referring to an ancient society, the shadow dynasty, that was destroyed. An earthquake soon after reveals an ancient artifact and the scientists discover the ruins of an ancient temple world on a remote mountain site. It leads them to an underground world, lost in time and where people have adapted to low light. The High Priest Elinu doesn't welcome the presence of the new arrivals and wants them eliminated.

When the three archaeologists are captured outside the underground city, the face of the actor that grabs Lafarge can be seen at the top of the screen, wearing dark face paint, but not wearing his "moleman" mask. Also his "mole-hands" are clearly seen to be just gloves, as the skin of the actor's forearm is visible beneath his sleeve. See more »
I've seen this movie several times over the years. It's a real semi classic, great example of 50s sci-fi monster movies. You do get a good look at the actual mole monsters and see quite a bit of them. As good as the mole monsters are, they are only a small part of this film. It's also an adventure movie about exploring for a lost civilization. Most of the plot involves this civilization which also happens to include the Mole People. This is good stuff. The stuff that used to scare and entertain in the 50s. The thing is, if you've seen a decent amount of horror/sci-fi films from the 50s and early 60s and haven't found much that you liked, "The Mole People" is not for you. If you're a fan of 50s B movies, you'll love this one. It's a real must see.
