Let’s drill into an buried Antarctic lake? What could go wrong?

Fark Geek implicitly raises an interesting point: has this scenario ever ended well in any form of popular modern entertainment?

An ambitious plan to explore a vast lake trapped beneath the Antarctic ice is a step closer to becoming reality.

An advance party has braved freezing temperatures to set up vital equipment and supplies at Lake Ellsworth.

The project by UK engineers to drill through the two-mile-thick ice-sheet is scheduled for the end of the year.

I mean, in terms of cinema alone a heck of a lot of films about Antarctica seem to have as their plot the old “We wake up something under the ice and it starts eating people.”  Admittedly, the quality of such films is, ah, uneven
