Sinkholes are the result of water eating away bedrock and soil underground, causing the earth to drop out from under itself in vast depressions or gaping chasms.

They can form gradually (like that of Berezniki, Russia) or very suddenly (last year in Guatemala City). It's unclear why there aren't more apocalyptic horror films about this sort of event.
