A separate screenplay by Nigel Kneale for theaters, parallel to the 1979 Quatermass four part mini-series. The story set in the near future involves influences from outer space that are possessing people. Professor Quatermass must save his granddaughter from the clutches of a popular and sinister cult "Planet People" that "performs raptures".

This edited version of Quatermass
(1979), less than half the length of the original TV series, was produced to be released theatrically overseas. This meant Nigel Kneale
had to write a script that would work both as a 4 hour series and as a 100 minute movie. See more
