Little Blog of Horror


THE QUATERMASS XPERIMENT was a pivotal production for England’s Hammer Films, adapting the insanely popular early Brit TV series into a no-kids-allowed theatrical version – hence the ‘X’ in the title.  It did great business and steered the company away from film noir quota-quickies and into sci-fi-horror and, shortly thereafter, into the Gothic Horror field that would be the company’s bread-and-butter and their legacy.
