  1. I always loved that movie. It’s known here in the states as “Five Million Years to Earth”. The fact is that I loved all of the Quatermass movies. The first one that I had ever seen as a kid back in the early sixties was ” The Quatermass Xperiment”, known here as “The Creeping Unknown”. Scared the hell out of me. It was the first in the series. The second was “Quatermas II” which was retitled “Enemy From Space”. All three are worth a screening if you are into classic scifi/horror movies…..

    1. I’d never heard of the Quatermass BBC show, let alone the movies, until just recently when a Brit friend posted the trailer. I vaguely remember the title Five Million Years to Earth and I’m sure I saw it long ago. Seems the series has an interesting background, and is connected to the crowning of Queen Elizabeth.
