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.
