The Quatermass Xperiment Blu-ray

Posted August 19, 2014 03:52 PM by Webmaster

Kino InternationalU.S. distributors Kino Video have confirmed that they will release on Blu-ray director Val Guest's film The Quatermass Xperiment (1955), starring Brian Donlevy, Jack Warner, Margia Dean, Gordon Jackson, Lionel Jeffries, and Thora Hird. The release is scheduled to arrive on the market on December 2.

Synopsis: In this chilling film based on the hit BBC-TV serial The Quatermass Experiment, a rocket ship returns to earth with a frightening surprise on board. Two of the ship's three astronauts have mysteriously vanished, while the third, Victor Carroon, is sick with an unidentifiable illness. While doctors try to help Victor recover, an investigation takes place to figure out just what happened to his comrades. As it turns out, Carroon's body has been taken over by an alien fungus that needs blood to survive. After the astronaut escapes from the hospital, he transforms into a monster, attacking everyone who gets in its way. Meanwhile, Scotland Yard detective Lomax and Quatermass, a determined scientist, attempt to track down the creature before it finds new victims. Also known as The Creeping Unknown.

Most exciting! I hope someone can wrestle the rights for Quatermass 2 and Quatermass and the Pit from Anchor Bay, since they could not care less about those two films and they've been out of print in the US for eons.

Wow! Finally a region A blu ray release. Could Quatermass II and Quatermass and the Pit be far behind?

I Hope Hammer's The Hound of the Baskervilles 1959 United Artists will be released soon by Kino ! It's available in Australia ! Capt. Kronos is also on Blu in Australia, But it's too Expensive with Shipping. More Hammer Films Please !!

Yes to this and please, please, please for Quatermass and the Pit. Heard it was recently restored by the BFI and I'd love to have a Region A release. Come on Anchor Bay, you had the rights last I've heard.

Awesome. The Quatermass Xperiment was actually the film that not only put Hammer on the map but it spawned everything else Hammer did. No QX means there would of been no Hammer vampire films which some get confused about.

@kimg1453, X the Unknown is probably owned by WB US rights wise so no dice as far as Kino releasing it.

@dougkuhn, you mean the region B Blu-ray? Pretty sure that master was done several years ago.

Still waiting on Quatermass and the Pit-- A.K.A--- {Five million years to earth 1967}. One of the scariest Si-Fi movies of my childhood.

I already imported the Hammer Horror Collection box set from Australia. https://www.jbhifi.com.au/movies-tv-shows/movies-tv-shows-on-sale/horror/hammer-horror-collection/468223/

The quality is awesome!

Judging by the latest Kino releases, I am not sure their release will match up with the Australia release, but I certainly hope it will.

@Penthouse, I would not be surprised if Kino uses the exact same master. Are the 'Bonus Films' in that collection SD?

@uther The bonus films on the Aussie disc are HD, but badly upscaled from SD with jagged line structure. My own TV would have done a far better job of upscaling.

FANTASTIC news! Bring it on! I would have preferred a Quatermass box set, but I'll take 'em as they come. Totally day one for me. Any genre title from the "golden age" will be mine!

The master is coming from MGM, which looks extremely nice -- likely the same one the Oz disc accessed (however that disc was interlaced and open-matte).
