Quatermass and the Pit 1967
97 mins United Kingdom Director. Roy Ward Baker
The film version of Nigel Kneale’s third Quatermass story boasts one of the most elaborate screenplays in British cinema. As boffins, army officers and politicians argue over a mysterious object unearthed at a London tube station, Kneale introduces and interweaves numerous narrative threads (scientific, mythic, historical, psychological, religious, etc) to intriguing and increasingly apocalyptic effect.
