Storyline

Professor Quatermass is working on a moonbase project from which the government suddenly and inexplicably withdraws funding. At the same time, instruments at his laboratory pick up a strange shower of meteor-like objects in the area of a village called Winterton Flats. Quatermass and one of his colleagues, Marsh, set out for the village and to their shock find a gigantic complex of buildings, which bears an uncanny resemblance to his moonbase plans. Then Marsh finds a meteorite still intact and picks it up. As he examines it, it explodes in his face, leaving a black wound on his cheek. Before the Professor can help him, armed guards, all bearing similar marks, arrive and take Marsh to the complex, a place shrouded in secrecy which the locals are unwilling to discuss. As he investigates further, Quatermass uncovers a terrifying scheme by Martian beings for an imminent invasion of earth…
