Film Description

The third in the trilogy of films based on Nigel Kneale's seminal Quatermass series, Quatermass & the Pit was made by Hammer Studios in 1967, directed by stalwart Roy Ward Baker and stars Andrew Keir as the scientist battling evil alien forces that threaten to take over the world. James Donald, Barbara Shelley and Julian Glover co-star.

During excavations in London a large unidentified object is unearthed in Hob's End tube station. Within its walls Professor Quatermass (Keir) discovers the remains of intelligent alien creatures that attempted to conquer the Earth in prehistoric times and, through their experiments on early man, altered human evolution to its present state. Though dormant for many centuries, the excavations threaten to unleash the terrifying force of the aliens upon mankind once again...

This is Hammer at their very finest, with a fabulous cast and a powerful atmosphere of slowly building terror.
