366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 89

The Date: December 28

The Movie: The Quatermass Xperiment (1955)

What Is It?: The Hammer Horror age officially begins, though it begins with a very un-Hammer-like B&W sci-fi horror picture starring an obnoxious American in a contemporary setting. However, there are touches of Christopher’s Lee’s Frankenstein Monster in Richard Wordsworth’s nuanced turn as an astronaut who slowly transforms into a blobby octopus who sets up shop in Westminster Abbey.

Why Today?: On this day in 1065, Westminster Abbey is officially consecrated.
