It was produced by Sergey Torchilin, Alexander Kalushkin, Ivan Tarlykov, Konstantin Elkin, and Andrey Lyakhov.


In The Superdeep, “The Kola Superdeep Borehole is the most large-scale secret object of the country. In 1984, inexplicable sounds like the screams of many voices were recorded at a depth of more than 12 kilometers. In the wake of these events, the object was closed. A small research team went down below the surface to find out what secret the world’s deepest borehole was hiding. What they have found turned out to be the greatest threat in history. And the future of humanity is in their hands.


The Superdeep is expected to surface in Russia on November 4, 2020, followed by its release by Shudder in late 2020 or early 2021 in the US.
