This science fiction drama begins when the Red Chinese have nearly completed a series of tunnels from Hawaii to every major city in the world. Their plot is to take over the world by gaining access to nuclear warheads. The U.S. Navy learns of the plan and Commander Jonathan Shaw (Kerwin Mathews) is called on to stop the diabolical plan. With the help of seismologist Arnold Kramer (Peter Arne) and Admiral Hillebrand (Robert Ayres), he races against time to save the United States and the rest of the world from being overrun with Chinese communists. To complicate matters, the evil General Chan Lu (Martin Benson) is acting against direct orders from the Chinese government in Peking. Dated in the extreme, Battle Beneath the Earth gets by on its "camp" appeal.
