REVIEW BY ADAM SCOVELL
Moving away from the established ideals of the first two Hammer Quatermass films, 1967’s Quatermass and the Pit has much to praise. Part of this is most definitely down to the change in director to Hammer regular Roy Wood Baker who creates an interestingly claustrophobic London. While excavating renovation for Hobb’s End Tube station, workman come across what appears to be an unexploded bomb. Upon further examination by Professor Quatermass and his team, they find it to be some form of space ship that starts causing strange happenings and mayhem.
