Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 349: Wed Dec 17

Quatermass and the Pit (Ward Baker, 1967): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 8.40pm

This film also screens on 8 & 12 December and is part of the BFI sci-fi season. Details here.

Time Out review:
'The third and most interesting of Nigel Kneale's Quatermass parables, scripted without interference by Kneale himself from his original TV series, so that his richly allusive web of occult, anthropological, religious and extraterrestrial speculation emerges intact as excavations at a London underground station turn up what appears to be an unexploded Nazi bomb, but proves to be a mysterious space craft.'
David Pirie

Here is the trailer.
