    Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing team up on the Horror Express to fight a threat out of Quatermass. There's definitely that franchise's mix of supernatural and science fiction at work, as a mummified caveman found in China turns out to be the vessel for some kind of evil during a trip through Siberia, the truth of which keeps shifting as the characters' understanding of it does, but if it's meant to keep us guessing, they fall a little short of that goal. Oh, it's not the pseudo-science that explains the monster's origins, but rather that it kills and kills and kills, always in the same way. It all gets a bit repetitive. Also too bad we don't get more of Telly Savalas' boisterous Cossack. He's definitely a more interesting character than the poorly characterized Mad Monk we're mostly stuck with though the length of the film (but then, what's a Lovecraftian entity without a good cultist to worship it?). 5 months ago

    Pretty good, had a "The Thing" vibe to it.

    Didn't like Telly Savalas in it though, good thing he wasn't in it much.
