Audience Reviews for Quatermass 2

  • Nov 28, 2015
    Brilliant early sci-fi horror that many TV shows and films today owe a debt to.

    Slightly better than The Quatermass Xperiment, Quatermass 2 is an almost completely different animal than its predecessor. Brian Donlevy is a less dickish Quatermass this time around as he tries to warn the town about an alien invasion instead of playing science and politics. The top secret base, the soldiers and all the imagery they bring are pretty damn frightening. The buildup to the 2 minutes of the monster(s) you eventually see is worth it. Unlike its predecessor, Quatermass 2 is entirely worth the trouble.

    excellent paranoid thriller aka enemy from space. professor quatermass discovers a mysterious 'area 51' in the english countryside. donlevy seems more committed to his role this time out; he's even learned to pronounce his name. pretty decent effects and great location. one more smart 50's sci fi from hammer, maybe the best of the quatermass series

    One of the best early sci-fil efforts I have seen, this movie about an alien invasion was likely the blueprint for such films as "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" among others. Crackerjack acting, paranoia, suspense, thrills, chills and a healthy dose of gunplay action..this film has it all and is to be applauded for its originality. Ahead of its time and a compelling watch.
