Journey to the Center of the Earth is a 1989 science fiction film. It was a nominal sequel to the movie Alien from L.A., both of which are (very) loosely based on the novel Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne.

According to credited director Rusty Lemorande, "Only the approximately first 8 minutes of the film were written or directed by me. The remainder of the film is actually the sequel to Alien In LA which was tacked on and renamed Journey to the Center of the Earth in order to fulfill contractual commitments by the production company to foreign distributors. The remainder of the footage I shot (my film) has never been seen by the public (and few others) due to the lack of funds at the time to shoot and insert the many special effects shots required. The storyline of my version/script is entirely different from that in the above-titled film (the released version)."[1]


A group of young people get lost in an underground cavern while exploring a volcano. Eventually they find their way to the lost city of Atlantis, at the center of the Earth.
