Directed by Antonio Margheriti
Daniel Bosch, Marina Giulia Cavalli, Robert Marius, Luciano Pigozzi, Charles Napier, John Anthony Kater, Frank Wannack Dieter
A female reporter drags her cameraman to an island where they believe toxic waste dumping is taking place within the indigenous active volcano area. With help form the local village resistance, the duo manage to infiltrate the chemical plant and film the evidence that proves the dumping is in fact taking place.
It is not long before the alarm is raised and the cameraman is captured and brought before the evil commander while the reporter manages to escape and meets a helpful snake venom expert in the jungle. The two plan on going back to the plant for a rescue mission, but little do they know that chaos will erupt with the awakening of the Alien from the Deep which has the whole compound in disarray.
This was Antonio Margheriti's last incursion to the sci-fi genre and last collaboration with long time producer Gianfranco Couyoumdjian. It really is more of a horror-action-adventure film though with an ecological message about the systematic destruction of nature which Margheriti again visited with his next film Indio.
