Originally titled Quatermass and the Pit, this movie is a version of a British radio and television series. Quatermass is a Sherlock Holmes type character as he knows a little about everything and can put this information to goo use. In this film, a tunnel is being dug for a subway when a funny looking skull if found. This skull has a rather large brain cavity. Then a bomb like object is found, so they call in the bomb squad of the army, but they don't know what it is. Quatermass finds out that the object is from 5 million years in the past and that it is full of aliens. Seems that this is a crashed alien ship and the aliens were the one to come along and further mankind by making out brains bigger and work better. Towards the end, everything gets really goofy and the devil becomes involved someway or another. I don't it is really explained, everyone just accepts it. Well the devil appears as an energy cloud that has horns and is grounded out by a guy on a crane thing. Quatermass and a girll then stand around looking at each other as the credits roll along. Did I mention that it was excedingly British.
