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), half the length of the mini-series, was produced to be released theatrically overseas. This meant Nigel Kneale
had to write a script that would work as a three hour and twenty-four hour mini-series, and as a one hour and forty-two minute movie. See more
