Description by OLDIES.com:
An international crew goes on a trip to the moon, where nothing but trouble is waiting. First one crew member is killed by some molten silver. Others die from lunar dust. Finally, it's revealed that the creatures behind the deaths are underground lunar dwellers who, threaten to freeze up all of North America unless the survivors tell those on Earth to stop all wars.
Bumping along over several flaws, this is an odd sci-fi film directed by David Bradley, best known for his incredibly vast private film library rather than his stints in the director's chair. A very motley crew is winging its way through space with the moon as its objective. On board the spaceship are a dozen scientists, engineers, and researchers from the U.S., Sweden, Russia, Israel, Germany, and even Turkey. The flight captain has not only a variety of nationalities to juggle but must also contend with the dissension between the German and Israeli due to a certain holocaust tragedy in World War II. The romance between the magnificent Swedish chemist and the Turkish biologist is also heating up. But the worst is yet to come. After landing on the moon, the crew discovers that underneath the lunar surface is a whole civilization of peace-loving moon-beings who never asked for visitors. Their reaction is rather chilling.
