I am trying to find the name of a movie I watched as a child in the seventies. It was prior to 1979.

Under a city there was a gas leak, I think, and while being repaired these larvae / insect bodies were unearthed. Right at the end of the movie, a devil like being was seen hanging in the sky, almost like a silhouette.

That’s all I remember as I was only about 8 or 9. It was super scary. Thanks.
