Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It was the enormous success of this Hammer version of Nigel Kneale's TV series which began the whole horror boom in Britain."
‑ , Time Out
"Yeah! Quatermass! Yeah!"
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, New Times
"This shoestring budget sci-fier began the craze in Great Britain for the modern horror film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A number of decent performances and a gritty realistic view of London makes this little sci-fi spin-off still worth a look."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"A thoughtful, hard-hitting, and bizarrely touching landmark of the sci-fi genre, endlessly referenced and recycled in subsequent film and TV."
‑ Ali Catterall, Film4
"This film featuring the super-scientist Quatermass was Hammer's first international hit and moved the studio to do films in the sci-fi and horror genres."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"One of the few truly great sci-fi films."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
