Dr. Stephen Sorenson plans to tap the geothermal energy of the Earth's interior by means of a thermonuclear device detonated deep within the earth. Despite dire warnings by fellow scientist Ted Rampion, Dr. Sorenson proceeds with the experiment after secretly learning that he is terminally ill. This experiment causes a crack to form and grow within the Earth's crust, which threatens to split the Earth in two if it is not stopped in time. Written by

As Doctor Sorensen's secret illness progresses, he is increasingly handicapped in visible ways... bandages around his hands, dark glasses indoors, etc. Yet no one notices. No other scientist, trained in observation comments. And the woman he is married to, says nothing, noting nothing is changed, despite his obvious deteriorating physical condition. See more »
Near the beginning of the movie, Dr. Sorenson and Rampion are flying a helicopter to the scene of a huge animal stampede. The low-angle in-flight shot of them in the cockpit shows clouds above them, but they are motionless. This indicates that this scene was filmed on the ground in a stationary helicopter. See more »
...I CAN'T BELIEVE IT HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED ON VIDEO!!!! WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!! While not a GREAT film, it nevertheless is entertaining with decent special effects for it's time. I recently recommended it to a friend only to find it's not available. For shame! I, for one, shall be eagerly awaiting it's release.
