Les Monstres de l'espace

  • France Le Monstre des abîmes (plus)


When workers building an extension to the London Underground dig up skeletal remains, palaeontologist Dr Matthew Roney is called in and deduces that they are the remnants of a group of apemen over five million years old. But Professor Bernard Quatermass draws other conclusions, suspecting something alien afoot. As theories swirl on the origins of these three-legged insectoid creatures with horned heads – Nazi propaganda? Demonic forces? – a drill operator is overcome by sudden telekinetic powers, and something very dark that has lurked deep within the bowels of the tube for millennia is unleashed onto the streets of London.

anglais I’m adding the third star for the atmospheric ending, where at last something interesting happens. Otherwise, it’s a weak film, and I’m saying this as someone who loves science fiction and horror. ()

anglais Professor Quatermass is quite an interesting character, but in this movie, what really caught my attention was the colorful execution and individual tricks, which are quite good. The story seemed to me like a mishmash of everything possible that science fiction offered at that time, although it is true that the author of the original work had this story out for quite a long time with the screenplay. However, I couldn't really get into the story. ()
