Night of the Big Heat

Hammer & British cinema in general was never really associated with sci/fi, with only few classic examples (Quatermass & the Pit probably the greatest), but this 1967 (off Hammer) movie is great offering. There is little point for a synopsis, all that needs to be said really is Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing star in an excellent (& quite risque for the time) sci/fi flick. Very British and a wonderful counterfoil to the American Sci/fi movies that where much more common in the 50's & 60's.....If you enjoyed Village of the Damned, Day the earth caught Fire or the aforementioned Quatermass movies, then this is essential viewing, or if you are just like me & will watch anything with Lee or Cushing, then there is nothing more to be said!

A forgotten gem

Though more a drama than horror/sci-fi flick, this late 60's entry from director Terence Fisher (Horror Of Dracula, Curse Of Frankenstein, etc) is an interesting tale about a heatwave being caused by... aliens. The dynamic duo of Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing make it all well worth it. Though Odeon's blu-ray is 1080i instead of 1080p, the picture quality is still very good and along with an informative audio commentary, it easily beats the US release.
