Around the turn of the century, American mining engineer Ben Harris is working on the Cornish coast in England, when he finds a body washed up on the beach. Ben makes inquiries at the nearby hotel. While talking to the hotelier's daughter --- fellow American Jill Tregellis --- a mysterious intruder appears, but then disappears. Later that night, Jill is kidnapped by strange creatures. Ben, Harold and Harold's chicken (yep, a fugitive from the fryer) follow a trail through a secret door into the caves under the house, where they are sucked into a pool. They emerge in a cavernous city on the ocean floor. The city was built by a race of ancients who survive only as these creatures. The city is now inhabited by a group of smugglers, led by a cruel and tyrannical captain, who's been down there since 1803 ... and due to the strange mixture of oxygen, has not aged in over a century.
