Critic Reviews of "The Quatermass Xperiment"Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
It was the enormous success of this Hammer version of Nigel Kneale's TV series which began the whole horror boom in Britain.Monthly Film BulletinFebruary 16, 2016
The playing, as usual in films of this type, is serviceable rather than distinguished, with Brian Donlevy as a brusque and peremptory Quatermass and Jack Warner as the sturdily dependable representative of Scotland Yard.Turner Classic Movies OnlineDecember 17, 2011
... the film is never less than intriguing and, at is best, is haunting, horrific and riveting.Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)November 17, 2011
This is Hammer's first major horror/science-fiction hit, but almost as notable is the fact that its doomed astronaut is the founding member of the studio's tragic rogues' gallery of transformed innocents -- monsters that didn't ask for their fates.Empire MagazineMay 14, 2008
A number of decent performances and a gritty realistic view of London makes this little sci-fi spin-off still worth a look.TV GuideMay 14, 2008
This film featuring the super-scientist Quatermass was Hammer's first international hit and moved the studio to do films in the sci-fi and horror genres.New TimesOctober 22, 2003
Yeah! Quatermass! Yeah!Film4May 24, 2003
A thoughtful, hard-hitting, and bizarrely touching landmark of the sci-fi genre, endlessly referenced and recycled in subsequent film and TV.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)November 06, 2002
One of the few truly great sci-fi films.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsSeptember 24, 2001
This shoestring budget sci-fier began the craze in Great Britain for the modern horror film.
