Quatermass and the Pit

Post by Yosemite Slam »

Hi. Would I be alone on here in thinking that Quatermass and the Pit is the best film Hammer ever made and, if not, how do people rate their other Quatermass movies?

Yosemite, a great argument could be made as to whether this is Hammer's best film. At the very, very worst it is in the top 5. I find it difficult to believe that others consider the first two Quatermass films better. This is one of the greats!

I've just re-watched this for the first time since the 1970s, a really good horror, with surprisingly good special effects considering it was made in 1967.
