It's the conclusion to the Summer of Hammer, and it's time to get evil! And we're not talking regular evil, here. This is pure, ancient evil! Wait, is the devil on horseback? Well, no. You'll have to get your cowboys versus Satanists jollies, elsewhere. But Christopher Lee has finally arrived in the Summer of Hammer! And he's here to thwart a Satanic cult, while riding (in a car) headlong into battle against the Goat of Mendes, the devil himself! Saddle up for the spectacular western (not really), The Devil Rides Out (1968)! And then from there, hang on a second! Are Martians automatically evil? Hey look, we're just talking about what we see in the movies, okay? Professor Quatermass, who prefers to limit his notoriety to the United Kingdom, thank you, oversees an excavation in the London Underground. When a large, unearthly object is uncovered, supernatural events begin to occur. It's Quatermass versus ghosts? Possession? But are these plot devices of earthly origin? It's Quatermass time! The Summer of Hammer ends, in Quatermass and the Pit (1967)!
