Quatermass 2 (1957) Dr. Quatermass is the director of an important scientific base, where he builds nuclear rockets for the colonization of the Moon. A strange fall of meteorites in a nearby village leads to the discovery of a huge base under a strict military control, officially a factory of artificial food. The shrewdness of Quatermass reveals that the factory is the place chosen by the aliens to conquer the Earth: they come in the form of an alive gas hidden in the meteors and to live in our atmosphere they use the human body taking the control of the brain. The courage of Quatermass and the launch of of his nuclear rocket against the asteroid of the aliens save the Earth.

More Movie Taglines:
  • A horrible enemy from the unknown strikes terror across the earth!
Movie Trivia:
  • John Rae appears as the same character in this film as he did in the original TV version.
  • The Shell Haven Refinery location used in the television serial was revisited for the film, which was able to make greater use of the location.
  • One of the first films (if not the very first film) ever to use the number 2 as an indicator that it was the sequel to another film. In a DVD commentary Francis Ford Coppola makes a similar claim for The Godfather: Part II (1974). The Godfather Part II was released some 17 years after this movie.
  • The ruined town of Winnerden Flats is at Ivinghoe Beacon (along The Ridgeway), near the village of Ivinghoe in Buckinghamshire, and is owned and protected by the National Trust.
  • 'Byran Forbes' replaced 'Maurice Kaufman' as Marsh.
