The Quatermass Xperiment

1955 film by Val Guest

The Quatermass Xperiment (U.S. title: The Creeping Unknown) is a 1955 film about three astronauts who are launched into space aboard a rocket designed by Professor Quatermass, but the spacecraft returns to earth with only one occupant, Victor Carroon. Something has infected him during the spaceflight, and he begins mutating into an alien organism which, if it spores, will engulf the Earth and destroy humanity. When the Carroon-creature escapes from custody, Quatermass and Scotland Yard's Inspector Lomax, have just hours to track it down and prevent a catastrophe.

Directed by Val Guest. Written by Richard Landau, based on the serieal by Nigel Kneale.
