Watched this as part of a hammer binge, it’s a good horror for a Sunday afternoon I think
Loved this Hammer yarn! B&W works well and Peter Cushing is excellent in everything anyway
great movie need more please
A real chiller.
It's really one of those films that works better the more you think on it. Less a creature feature, more an engaging thriller about a group of explorers battling harsh conditions to find even the slightest glimpse of something they're not sure even exists. A real-slow-burner. See it if you think it sounds cool.
