I rented Hammer's Quatermass Experiment movie last night.
2.49 pounds on You Tube [for some reason I can't get the pound sign to work on my new Lenovo laptop!]
This will be controversial but I preferred X The Unknown, which I saw last week.
Don't get me wrong, Quatermass Experiment aka The Creeping Flesh is a fabulous black and white sci-fi epic.
I found the acting a little stiff though and maybe a bit stereotyped. Did Jack Warner's copper really have to whistle when he walked to the phone - at home?
But I'm nit-picking. I doubt if this sort of brilliant eco-astro-radioactive sci fi could even be attempted anymore.
As a final point I loved the space rocket at the start. It reminded me of the Project SWORD Task Force 2!
Hammer's Quatermass II will be rented later in the week. Am I in for a treat?
