great bit of sci-fi,
This review is from: Quatermass And The Pit [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
watched this film when I was a kid and thought it was really scary. so I bought it again a couple of years back and have watched it loads of times since.
I really like it because it is very British (even Quatermass is British in this film, unlike the other two) and really gets it just right with the atmosphere. it is genuinely a bit creepy even now.
also the central ideas are quite intelligent, it doesn't assum ethat because it's sci-fi it can't try and say something similar. I particularly like the idea that our ideas and images of the devil and gargoyles have been formed by ancient experiences.
I haven't seen the original TV series, and by the looks of some of the comments below I should check it out. however I think the film stands up perfectly well on its own. just the thing for Sunday afternoon viewing.
