Quatermass and the Pit

Theatrical Release Date:  TBC
Home Ent. Release Date:  12 Nov 2006
Cert:   Not Rated


Originally screened by BBC television in December 1958, Quatermass and the Pit was the final entry in the original trilogy of Quatermass stories by writer Nigel Kneale. Hammer optioned the story from Kneale in 1961, but finance and distribution problems delayed production for another six years. The film represented the Hammer debut of acclaimed director Roy Ward Baker (who had made A Night to Remember in 1958) and starred Andrew Keir as Professor Quatermass. Produced at MGM’s expansive Borehamwood studio, Quatermass and the Pit is one of Hammer’s most polished, and thought-provoking, films
