Traumafession:: QJS on Children of the Damned & Quatermass and the Pit

March 3rd, 2014 by unkle lancifer · 7 Comments

Films that scared me as a kid? No CONTEST…’Children of the Damned‘ (little known sequel to the ORIGINAL ‘Village of the Damned‘)

I don’t think I slept for 6 MONTHS after watching this, and I wasn’t even that young!

Oh, and finally, ‘Quatermass and the Pit‘ (AKA ‘Five Million Years to Earth‘) There is a scene set in a bombed-out house that still rates as one of the SPOOKIEST scenes I have EVER seen!

Happy Viewing!

    Thanks for the traumafession QjS! Btw- you helped me to realize that I misspelled “Quatermass ” the other day in our “Name that trauma!” post! How long have I been going around saying “Quarter-mass”? πŸ™‚

    Great Traumafession, QJS. Two classics that manage to have a creepy qualities.

    That’s (kwayter-mass) for those who are wondering. πŸ˜‰

    This is why I could never do a podcast! I would be trying to sound smart and saying “Quarter-mass” the whole time!

    But I must say, “Quartermass” is a good name for a hamburger. They should introduce the McDonald’s Quartermass.

    Both great movies! Also, you’re not alone with the “Quartermass” thing. I am suddenly ashamed at the number of times I’ve talked those films up to people. Every time I think I’m cool…

    I love the multicultural team of evil children! Remember: evil isn’t just one color… it’s a rainbow! πŸ™‚

    I feel better that I’m not alone. I just looked and my homemade VHS tape even says “Quartermass” on it. This has been going on for years!

    M Kitka,
    Lol. It’s so sad Good isn’t as accepting as Evil.
