Product Description

Scripted by Hammer stalwart Jimmy Sangster and starring Forrest Tucker, this British chiller was based on a popular TV series. A scientist, Alan Brooks (Forrest Tucker) arrives at the small alpine village of Trollenberg to investigate the decapitation of a mountaineer. His death, he suspects, has links to other gruesome murders in South America.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can lose your head in the clouds 4 Aug 2011
By bernie VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This movie is based on a British TV series The Trollenberg Terror.

A mysterious cloud is occupying the mountain. People are mysteriously disappearing or at least their heads are detaching. Alan Brooks (Forest Tucker) has seen this happen before and is familiar with the phenomenon so he is sent to investigate. Also, Sarah Pilgrim (Jennifer Jayne) a psychic in a sister act is compelled to go there; if you do not keep your EYE on her, she has a tendency to wander off in a trance.

There is something funny about one of the disappearing villagers that suddenly returns.

It looks like the only hope for the town's people is to head for the lab at the top of the sky lift as it has thick concrete walls. The lab is equipped the standard 50's SCI/FI equipment. Yet your future is cloudy (radioactive cloudy). When confronted by a mysterious eye will you freeze in your tracks or do you have a tentacle to be lifted by the experience.

Do not watch this movie if you are in a cabin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid Horror 15 Jan 2013
By CN
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In my youth, I never managed to get past half way through this horror/SciFi film on TV. It was a bit like those who watched as children Doctor Who from behind the settee! However, once the monster is seen, then it becomes just becomes fun in the same way that the old Doctor Who films have become classic. So, my childhood fears are dissipated 50 years later and it is great that this old film has been released recently on DVD. Whatever the age, and even given graphics and monsters a generation back from what can be produced now, the film is splendid for the tenseness and it it is gripping through to the end. A splendid watch for those with a bit of a yen for horror films of times gone past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Oldie Classic Worth a View 12 Feb 2013
By E. A. Redfearn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have no memory of the television series being shown during the 1950s when this was the era of BBCs Quatermass. So, it was good to seize the opportunity of watching the film version which, although dated, is very entertaining, especially for movie buffs like myself who get a lot of enjoyment watching these oldie B-Movies from those far off days.

Forrest Tucker stars as a Scientific Investigator Alan Brooks who is sent for to investigate some mysterious deaths in the Alps. Along the way, he meets two lovely ladies (lucky man!) played by Jennifer Jayne (William Tell) and Janet Munro (The Day The Earth Caught Fire) who both end up staying in the same village. One of them is a psychic, and apparantly has some connection with the mysterious happenings on the mountain overlooking the village where a strange cloud can be observed.

That is basically the storyline really. Oldie TV and Movie fans will recognise many of the actors from those far off days, Warren Mitchell; Laurence Payne; Andrew Faulds and Colin Douglas. Produced by Robert S Baker and Monty Berman who went on to produce many popular TV series, with a script by Jimmy Sangster who also wrote many fine scripts for Hammer films, including Quatermass Experiment. Special effects look a little amateurish, but its the dated effects which provide these films with much charm.

Picture quality is rather good bearing in mind the film's age, with mono sound. There are no extras to speak off, nevertheless it is a fine purchase, especially for sci-fi fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Trollenburg Terror 14 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
I am a fan of these old black and white sc-fi films. This was serialised by the BBC many years ago. I missed it or was not allowed to watch it then. So I watched the film much later and enjoyed it. Yes the monsters are a bit naff! But I think the tension is built well. It has all the usual stuff, female interest, child threatened by the monster and saved by the hero.

However if you do not expect too much from your films and enjoy the "B" movie sc-fi. Then this is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars A treat for Jennifer Jayne fans 18 Feb 2008
Format:DVD
This film is real nostalgic nonesense and a treat for fans of the great British scary B movie era. I loved it for it's atmosphere and very un-special effects enhanced by black and white, and as for Jennifer Jayne - as stunning a brunette as she was a blonde in the William Tell series of the late 50's. Enjoy it for the early horror that it is - because modern horror it aint! Great stuff!
