The excellent LITTLE SHOPPE OF HORRORS (#40) is due out next month. For any lover of Hammer Horror, Richard Klemensen's 'zine is not to be missed. This issue focuses on the Quatermass series. Pre-order your copy HERE.

The three BBC serials devoted to Prof. Bernard Quatermass were huge hits on British television in the 1950s. Hammer made wonderful versions of the first two - The Quatermass Xperiment (1954) and Quatermass 2 (1956). But it would be 1967 before Hammer produced the most intelligent feature film version of the three - Quatermass and the Pit. Are we now the Martians?
