In my simple Bible way I did a lot of praying.

When an experimental rocket ship crashes back down to Earth, Bernard Quatermass is baffled as to why three astronauts went up, but only one has returned. The returning astronaut is Victor Carroon and he’s in a bad way. Unable to speak and going through some sort of metamorphosis, it’s not long before he starts to become something that literally threatens all of mankind. Can Quatermass and his team of scientists stop the creeping unknown in its tracks?.

The character of Bernard Quatermass was born out of the considerable brain of writer Nigel Kneale. A science boffin and defender of the Earth against other worldly beasties, Quatermass was first seen on the screen in the BBC TV serial in 1953. Here that bastion of British horror, Hammer Film Productions, adapts a story for the screen and produce a gritty science fiction thriller that doesn’t resort to the hokey monster schlock conventions so evident in the 1950s. Directed by Val Guest (who co-writes with Richard H. Landau), the Quatermass franchise (sequels, more TV serials and another linked film would follow down the line) always thrived because of the intelligence and willingness to explore the science surrounding the stories within. Here with this one we get an interesting look at the political aspects that surround the space programme, and this in turn dovetails nicely with the police investigation as the “Yard” search for the man, soon to be monster.

Effectively using London locations such as Westminster Abbey, Guest’s movie also pulses with great characters. Not just those on the trail of the stricken astronaut, but also those that he (it) comes into contact with – such as a Frankenstein like encounter with a young girl (Jane Asher) playing with her doll. It’s well thought out stuff, even if budget restrictions and time scale can’t quite fully realise Kneale’s creation. Of the cast, Brian Donlevy steps into the shoes of brainy Bernard, seen as an odd casting choice by many, it proves to be quite astute. Quatermass is straight laced and a stickler for his science, Donlevy’s mannerisms and gruff exterior suit the role very well. Britain’s favourite copper Jack Warner of course plays the inspector leading up the investigation, and as usual he’s as solid as a rock, while Richard Wordsworth is brilliant as the doomed Victor Carroon. There’s also little turns from British treasures like Thora Hird, Lionel Jeffries and Gordon Jackson.

With its writing smarts appeasing the adults and having enough of a creature feature vibe to entertain the kids, The Quatermass Experiment is a classy bit of 50s sci-fi that covers most of the bases. 8/10

Review By: John Chard

American scientist Brain Donlevy sends a rocket with three men into space; it comes back with only one and he is very, very sick. What happened to the other two – the ship was hermetically sealed? Well this decent British sci-fi/horror film follows the investigation as together with police officer Jack Warner they try to get to the bottom of things. Meantime, the sole survivor of the exploratory flight goes awol and we discover an alien creature is now on the loose on post war London and it is hungry! It’s now race against time to stop it reproducing and taking over the world – and who better than our intrepid team to track it down and destroy it. This has been done on a pretty basic budget; but is well written and directed with a creative approach to the cinematography that rewards the viewer with a much less stilted single-scene style of presentation than many British efforts of the mid 1950s – and it has two strong performances to keep the pot boiling.

Dashingly good sci-fi film with a strong stench of horror
Well written and terminally fascinating British sci-fi thriller from director Val Guest and writer Nigel Neale. It is a film of big ideas and planet-sized concepts that stares up into the unknown with a combination of wonderment and dread.

Originally a highly popular TV series, it spawned two excellent sequels and decades of creative Hollywood pilfering.

Brian Donlevy is wonderful as Quatermass, a scientist with the bullying manner of a military drill Sargent and a fierce, pragmatic streak. After a rocket that he sent into space crashes back to Earth, Quatermass and unofficial partner-in-crime Inspector Lomax (Jack Warner) uncover a bizarre alien conspiracy in which a surviving astronauts’s body has been “borrowed” by extraterrestrials keen on relocating.

Director Guest gives the drama a no-nonsense, almost documentary feel. The special effects are perfectly acceptable for the period and the brooding sense of mid-century paranoia is well conveyed.

The hero is the script, though. The dialogue is fresh and colourful and writers Guest and Neale always keep the scientific jargon interesting. All the characters are believable and the performances are top notch.

Despite the fact that James Bernard’s solid score is a little overbearing at times, this is a dashingly good science fiction film with a strong stench of horror.

Classic Brian Donlevy Film
Always enjoyed the great acting of Brian Donlevy in most of his films and for some reason I missed this film or series he appeared in. Brian Donlevy, (Prof. Bernard Quartermass), “Kiss of Death”,’47, specializes in Space Exploration and had a rocket crash back on earth and some very strange things started to happen through out England. The film takes you from local police departments to the London Zoo and many Medical Labs and some good CSI and DNA samples even in the year 1955. This Sci-Fi film was way a head of its time and did a very good job of showing what a 1955 rocket into space would look like and it will definitely make you laugh in comparison to 2006! This was a very well acted film by most of the actors, I was surprised to learn that Brian Donlevy was related to Bela Lugosi Jr. as a Father-in-Law and the fact that Donlevy had quite a colorful life off the Stage.
