Abstract:

1863. Professor Liedenbrock deciphers a cryptic message giving instructions on how to find a passage to the centre of the earth through the crater of an Icelandic volcano. The professor, his reluctant son, Axel, and an Icelandic guide, set out on an incredible journey. As the three explorers descend into the bowels of the earth, they encounter many strange phenomena and dangers, including a vast underground world lit by electrically charged gas at the ceiling, a deep subterranenan ocean, and creatures that have long since vanished from the surface above. Will the adventurers live long enough to tell their extraordinary tale?
