Catalogue Note

This 1957 black-and-white British science fiction horror film was directed by Val Guest, and stars Brian Donlevy, John Longden, Sid James, Bryan Forbes, Vera Day and William Franklyn. It was the sequel to Hammer Film's 1955 film The Quatermass Xperiment. Both these films were based on the BBC Television serial Quatermass II, written by Nigel Kneale. In this film Professor Quatermass (Donlevy) investigates reports of hundreds of meteorites landing solely in the Winnerden Flats in the UK. His inquiries lead him to a top-secret facility, strangely similar to his own moon colony plans, where he uncovers a conspiracy involving aliens. Professor Quatermass and his allies do whatever they can to stop the alien invasion. 


This is a rare British science fiction poster that does not surface very often.
