Tagline: Nothing can destroy it!
In the countryside of London, a rocket crashes on a farm and Professor Bernard Quatermass and Scotland Yard Inspector Lomax arrive in the spot. The rocket was launched by Prof. Quatermass with the astronauts Victor Carroon, Greene and Reichebheim; however only Carroon is found very sick in the cabin. He is transported to a private clinic to stay under observation despite the protests of his wife Mrs. Judith Carroon. She bribes a nurse to bring Carroon to her and she finds that he is transforming into a monster. Carroon escapes, killing people and animals during his metamorphosis while the Scotland Yard is hunting him down and Dr. Quatermass discovers that his process is an alien invasion.
Donlevy plays Quatermass to perfection as a scientist who is both horrified and fascinated by the events he has set in motion. The Quatermass Xperiment is a classic of the genre. From the terrific performance to the realistic style and tone, to the excellent cinematography, to the dark score by Jame Bernard, The Quatermass Xperiment is a tour de force for the more intelligent and less action based science fiction films. It’s a tense, realistic, and gritty science fiction classic.
This film was released in the United States in 1956 in an edited 78 minute version under the title The Creeping Unknown.
