Quatermass and the Pit (aka Five Million Years to Earth to those of us in the US) is a stunning science fiction film from Hammer. Produced during a period when Hammer films had begun to look cheap, Pit has a number of stunning performances and well designed action sequences. Although the optical effects haven't aged all too well (the sequence where we "see" the Martians during their eugenics war looks about as convincing as the Zanti Misfits in the Outer Limits), the acting and imaginative sets save the day. I do have to praise the opticals at the close of the film as they still look stunning and are quite imaginative.
