I'd never really noticed before, but don't the Martians look like they're in some kind of band, doing a synchronised routine, Shadows style???

Scared the poo out of me when I first saw this mid-70s and still retains much of its power. The link with Satan (that pic...shudder) was killer stuff.

'Quatermass Conclusion' still makes me shudder too, but for the social scenario in which the Sci-Fi story plays out, a scenario even more plausible now in its way than back in 1974 or so when IIRC it was written.

I have an uncle that works in the crane union and a brother in law that is an entomologist and both agree the thing floating is an insect under the order creepodoptera.
