Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Routine, somewhat distended development blunts impact of this British-made programmer."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"As well as providing a generous helping of shocks, Kneale's script gives his complex themes and theories plenty of space..."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"One of the high points of Hammer's film production, and a worthy addition to the cannon of films and TV realisations of the products of Nigel Kneale's probing, prescient imagination."
‑ , Film4
"The brilliant pre-Von Daniken anthropological theme of Kneale's script still guarantees interest."
‑ , Time Out
"Easy to dismiss as camp folly, but you really shouldn't."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"This is a movie with, to be blunt, a twenty-dollar budget -- but billion-dollar ideas."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"All of its pseudo-scientific talk seemed to short-circuit the audience's interest -- in it and in themselves."
‑ Renata Adler, New York Times
"The third and best of the Quatermass films."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Methodical in its pacing, building a level of dread with a payoff that fully justifies that atmosphere."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
