Rating: 3.5/4 -- This is Hammer's first major horror/science-fiction hit, but almost as notable is the fact that its doomed astronaut is the founding member of the studio's tragic rogues' gallery of transformed innocents -- monsters that didn't ask for their fates. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The picture that helped to transform Hammer Films into an enduring fright factory, 1956's The Quatermass Xperiment earns its reputation as a legacy-hoisting hit. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- One of the few truly great sci-fi films.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Nov 6, 2002
The playing, as usual in films of this type, is serviceable rather than distinguished, with Brian Donlevy as a brusque and peremptory Quatermass and Jack Warner as the sturdily dependable representative of Scotland Yard. Full Review

It was the enormous success of this Hammer version of Nigel Kneale's TV series which began the whole horror boom in Britain. Full Review
Time Out
Feb 9, 2006
A thoughtful, hard-hitting, and bizarrely touching landmark of the sci-fi genre, endlessly referenced and recycled in subsequent film and TV. Full Review
