Inspired by the classic tale by Jules Verne, this story goes back to the land that he created. Mysterious Island has risen again, this time in 2008 and the infamous Captian Nemo is back to command a new set of monsters.
Two zoologists who've been hired to survey the day to day life of penguins on a rogue iceberg end up finding out their job is a lot more complicated than they originally expected. The entire primary cast is original, although Landis created a plot device to fit in a slew of Harryhausen monsters that a lot of people will probably be happy to see. The group later discovers that their secret helper is the reclusive Captain Nemo.
