An edited for theaters version of the 1979 Quatermass four part mini-series set in near future. Professor Quatermass must save his granddaughter from the clutches of a popular and sinister cult "Planet People" that "performs raptures".
A series of six effective and concise chillers commissioned by ATV from producer Nicholas Palmer and writer Nigel Kneale - who had just left as a staff writer for the BBC - transmitted on Saturday nights. The plays all had a minimal feel with the stories taking place in ordinary locations such as a farm house, a supermarket or a front room. Written by
a forgotten but terriffic telly serial from a great writer.
i can vividly remember seeing this excellant six part british telly production way back when i was 13 and it still ranks as one of the best shows i've ever seen. penned by the very talented manx 'quatermas' creator nigel kneale; it consisted of six independent dramas all based around the supernatural. my favourite was the one about the disturbed actor who runs amok in a film studio! oh how i'd love to see this delightful series again if it ever was repeated on t.v. or surfaced on video/dvd!
