Not as good as the first, but still a pretty good sci-fi/horror thriller, this time Dr Quatermass is trying to drum up support for his moon base project. Eventually, he finds a life-size version of his base out in the desert near a town that is sworn to secrecy else they lose their jobs at the factory at the base. Of course, there are aliens involved and they're not too friendly to us humans.
Quatermass seems a bit more afraid in this one than he was in the first, but he's still a no nonsense American, pushing everybody's British buttons a little too far. Absolutely worth a look, but don't expect the first film.
This is probably the first instance of a numeral being used in the title of a sequel!
Hammer wouldn't revisit Quatermass for another 10 years, unfortunately. And he would be played by Scottish/Irish actor Andrew Keir.
