The Quatermass Experimen
At the dawn of the space age the British Rocket Group launches three astronauts on an experimental mission. Their ship, Quatermass 1, loses radio contact with Earth and later crash-lands. Professor Bernard Quatermass (Brian Donlevy) is one of the first on the scene, and is intrigued to discover that two of the crew are no longer aboard. It soon becomes clear that the mission’s sole survivor, Victor Carroon (Richard Wordsworth), is desperately ill. Carroon is rapidly consumed by the parasitic alien organism that killed his fellow astronauts. He embarks on a murderous rampage, powerless to prevent his ultimate, horrifying transformation. The Quatermass Xperiment was based on Nigel Kneale’s groundbreaking BBC serial, and was the first of Hammer Film Productions’ legendary horror films.
Strange metallic meteorites rain down over Winnerden Flats, an eerie new town in the vicinity of a highly guarded chemical plant. Professor Quatermass (Brian Donlevy) is intrigued to discover that contact with the meteorites causes an unusual infection, and is astonished to find that the chemical plant appears to be modelled after his own design for a moonbase – a design that enables life to thrive in an artificial atmosphere. Quatermass’s investigation uncovers a sinister conspiracy that extends from government level to the zombie-like workers who will stop at nothing to protect the plant. It soon becomes clear that they have all been enslaved by alien creatures who are using Winnerden Flats as the launching point for an invasion of Earth. Quatermass 2 was based on Nigel Kneale’s classic BBC serial, and is still regarded as one of the most disturbing films Hammer ever made.
