The Abyss is inspired by actual events. There was a massive earthquake in a mine in Kiruna, Sweden in May 2020 caused by excavation. 13 miners were working at the time of the incident, but no one was injured. However, the concern that the town might collapse into a massive crater is very real. An effort to relocate the Kiruna began in 2004 and is estimated to be completed by 2035. – via Netflix
