Bernard Quatermass is old, bitter and disillusioned. So is the Britain he lives in.
This is a pretty chilling story of a future Britain and its best brains attempting to fight both alien invaders and their own youth.
I watched this many, many years ago and remebered it well. It was a pleasure to get it on DVD and watch it again. It is at times chilling, scary, and sad. The ending is not a happy one, but it is a fitting one.
