A trio of divers (Robert Clarke, Allen Windsor, Sheila Noonan) and a reporter (Phyllis Coates) make it to the bottom of the sea in professor Wyman's (John Carradine) experimental deep sea diving bell. But then something goes wrong and before you know it, our deep sea quartet sees itself marooned on the Ocean floor. Wyman of course can't send a rescue diving bell or a rescue anything-else after them because his bell was one of a kind, and nobody has made it that deep before. Out of desperation, our four divers try to reach the surface in light diving gear, but instead, they make it to some cave system that, despite deep below the sea level, is mysteriously filled with oxygen. They now try to make it to the surface on foot, but constantly run into dead ends. Eventually, they bump into a cave dweller (Maurice Bernard), a survivor from a shipwreck who has been living here for years, and he smashes all their hopes for reaching the surface, claiming the oxygen doesn't come from up above but from a volcano - which is even true ...

Meanwhile, Wyman leaves no stone unturned to save his team, even if that means going to his competitor (George Skaff) in the development of diving bells, who has been giving up his experiments concerning deep sea diving after Wyman's failure - but now that Wyman finances a test drive of his bell, he's on the job again. And his diving bell doesn't come one moment too early for our four marooned heroes, as the cave dweller has just rediscovered his homicidal instincts after years of solitude, and the volcano has chosen just now to break out and destroy the cave system. Of course, our four heroes are saved though.


Mildly entertaining drive-in science fiction from the 1950's that never really rises above its low budget roots - sets, cast and a suspicious absence of costly effects the story would have called for see to that - and that it's based on a rather silly script of course ... but then again these are factors that make it enjoyable for your typical trashfilm afficionado, right? True, there are better, trashier sci-fi epics from the 1950's around, but if you don't set your hopes too high, you'll probably be entertained.
