Ep. 04-25: Quatermass and the Pit (1967)

Prehistoric skeletons are discovered during an expansion of the London Underground. Paleontologist Matthew Roney (James Donald), believes them to be remnants of ancient man, but the strange metal object found with them is a mystery. Professor Bernard Quatermass (Andrew Keir) thinks it is evidence that the creatures came from space. More digging reveals the corpses of actual Martians and a strange energy field that sends London into a panic.

Quatermass and the Pit

As much fun as Universal films in America, Hammer films of England often bear wonderful chestnuts and refreshing dips into the pool of nostalgia. And though Hammer is mostly known for its forages into Universal monster territory, Quatermass and the Pit (1967) is one of their rare science fiction films. Join us as we discuss the talented team of writer Nigel Kneale, and director Roy Ward Baker and their spin on a deeply intellectual H. G. Wells-type story. Listen as Johnny has the Keys go down into the London underground where historical evidence of Earth, and perhaps Mars, lies not so still.
