FORCE MORE POWERFUL THAN 1,000 H-BOMBS UNLEASHED TO DEVASTE EARTH! WORLD IN PANIC! CITIES IN FLAMES!
Based on the TV serial of the same name, Quatermass and the Pit was the third of Hammer’s adaptations of Nigel Kneale’s work and was the first time viewers would’ve been able to see Quatermass in colour, with all three of the original TV serials and the first two films having been produced in black-and-white. Released in the US under the title Five Million Years to Earth, it was written by creator Nigel Kneale who had been unhappy with the liberties taken in the previous two films. For this one the story line was kept much closer to the original with a couple of sub-plots cut out to condense the story so that it would better fit the film’s run time.
