Remember in the good old days when horror/sci-fi didn't depend on multi-million dollar effects and a copse count in the hundreds - NO? Well sit back and enjoy what can be done with effective camera work and a script that oozes quality. Ok, the acting is a bit dodgy in places (as is the scenery)but somehow that just adds to the story. Bear in mind if it wasn't for ground-breaking work like this series TV producers wouldn't have had the ability to go to produce the sci-fi classics from the 60's onwards. Quatermass and the Pit is stunning, if you like the Hammer film version (probably one of the best British sci-fi films ever) then this original is even better. Watch these and remember, why behind the sofa was such a favorite place as a kid.
