The Incredible Petrified Movie

Craggy-faced John Carradine drops a quartet into the sea in a faulty bathyscaphe that crashes on the ocean bottom. However our lucky cast swims up into a cave replete with air, heat, light, and pools of fresh water. An off-camera volcano is cited as the source of heat and air (?), but no explanation of the ambient light and fresh water. They wander around a lot in this cave while Phyllis Coates (Lois Lane from the '50s Superman TV series) has some nasty mood swings and a romance blooms between Robert Clarke (Hideous Sun Demon) and Sheila Noonan (Beast from Haunted Cave). Meanwhile Carradine is top-side looking extra-craggy while manipulating odd pieces of machinery. They're all rescued just before Coates is ravaged by a kooky survivor they found living in the cave and the inevitable B-movie earthquake destroys it. Almost entirely composed of stagnant medium shots on sets that would embarrass Ed Wood interlaced with grainy stock footage, this is one of the cheapest looking SF movies I've seen to date. Even Manos had more visual pizzazz than this cinematic rock.
