When professor Quatermass (Brian Donlevy) wants to find out about a few meteorites hitting the earth near the village of Winnerden Flats, much to his surprise he finds the whole village gone, a giant production plant (actually a Shell-oil reinery) standing in its place, guarded by military personnel. But when he takes the matter to Whitehall, he's fed of with a bogus story of synthetic food-production - but at least gets a permit for a guided tour. & of course it's not a synthetic food plant (otherwise the movie would be quite a disappointment), but something of an invasion-launching-base for aliens (who actually look like lumps of dirt, but can join together & grow to gigantic size), who are able to take over humans - thus have the best relations to British government. Naturally, Quatermass interferes, & with the help of a handfull of (human) construction workers dissatisfied with the way they are treated by their alien employers (it does make sense in the movie), & the rocketship he kept in his backyard used as a missile to destroy the alien mothership, he can fight off the evil invaders - but not before some joined-together, giant aliens roam the premises for a bit.

 

Hammer's adaptation of the second BBC-Quatermass serial (imaginatively titled Quatermass 2 from 1955), is, very much like its predecessor, a fine piece of science fiction, with Brian Donlevy still being too American for the part, but again delivering an otherwise fine performance as the self righteous, bullying, energetic, but overall wellmeaning scientist, even if at the time he had to allegedly read all his lines from cue-cards for he couldn't memorize them due to heavy alcoholism - which did not show in the movie. Also, most of the sets are quite good, with a Shell oil-refinery doubling as the alien base rather nicely.
