British Army radiation drills at a remote Scottish base attract a subterranean, radioactive entity of unknown nature that vanishes, leaving two severely radiation-burned soldiers... and a "bottomless" crack in the earth. Others who meet the thing in the night suffer likewise, and with increasing severity; it seems to be able to "absorb" radiation from any source, growing bigger and bigger. What is it?? How do you destroy a thing that "feeds" on energy?

The movie began under the direction of Joseph Losey
(working as Joseph Walton), exiled to England because of the Hollywood blacklist; however, when Dean Jagger
arrived, he refused to work with a director he thought of as a Communist sympathizer, and Losey was replaced by Leslie Norman
before shooting began. Losey's departure was publicly attributed to "illness". It has also been reported that Losey simply didn't want to make the film and left the project, to be replaced by Norman, who also didn't want to make the movie, but did anyway for the sake of work. See more
