Quatermass And The Pit (Roy Ward Baker, 1967)
« on: 30 Apr 2013 - 12:32 »


A strange strange object is found when they are digging to build a new extension to the London Underground, what does it hold? Really enjoyed this one a lot more than I thought I would. I didn't think I'd seen it before but some of it rings a bell, I must have seen it (or some of it) when I was a kid.

Watched the U.K. Blu Ray, the transfer is superb. Well worth a purchase for those who haven't got it already. It's Region B locked.

This was one of the first Blu-rays I bought due to the unanimously positive reviews of the transfer plus it's a favourite of mine anyway.

The Turner Classic Movie channel in the States played an HD broadcast of this over the weekend and I sat and watched for a little while.  It's always been one of my favorite Hammer films.  I can still remember the first time I encountered the movie -- I was very young and my dad let me watch a bit on television before my bedtime.  My young imagation was incredibly intrigued by the premise and it stuck in my brain for years until I finally caught up to it again as a young adult and had the chance to watch the whole thing to finally see how it played out.  In the US this went by the title Five Million Years To Earth.  I've had the old Anchor Bay DVD since it was first released, but would definitely consider an upgrade (no all region blu-ray access for me at this time though, alas).

Never forget the workman with the drill. The expression on his face as he tries to drill through the outercasing…

An "older" friend of mine played one of the soldiers.  ;)

Just watched this on Blu.. By 'eck it's a belter!

Found myself looking at the check pattern in Quatermass' suit and the detail in uniform buttons quite a lot... Also noticed all the Hammer posters on the walls of the tube station for the first time.
