Survivor (1998)

Film details


Set on an isolated oil rig in the Arctic, this is the story of a five-member crew drilling for oil in the Earth's pre-Cambrian layer - deeper than anyone has drilled before.

Soon after penetrating what they believe is the final layer of virgin rock, two gruesome murders cause the crew to re-evaluate their mission.

The surviving crew members realize the killings may be linked to something evil they themselves may have unleashed far below the Earth's frozen surface.
