The Reptile (1966) was made back-to-back with The Plague of the Zombies by a straitened Hammer Films in a mid-Sixties efficiency drive which turned out to have unexpectedly inspired results. The two movies share the same director (John Gilling,) several cast members (most noticeably Hobbit-like Michael Ripper and the dreamy Jacqueline Pearce,) the same sets (odd corners of Bray Studios standing in for Cornwall,) and even replicate certain themes (in both cases, the menace is an exotically foreign intrusion into a parochial English setting.) The Plague of the Zombies is perhaps the closest Hammer came to a masterpiece. The Reptile isn't quite is the same league, but is still one of the studio's more memorable offerings.

Prometheus has one hell of an identity crisis. Is it a prequel to Alien? A brand new science fiction epic with vague echoes of Ridley Scott's classic? Another story set in the same universe with a slight bit of connective tissue? It doesn't help that Sir Ridley himself has refused to confirm anything, just kind of vaguely stating that it started it out as a quasi-Alien prequel before branching out to becoming something bigger and less finite. However, Marc Streitenfeld's music score to the film has just been released digitally and it contains a few clues to what Prometheus really is and also perhaps if it'll be any good.
In this impressively assured and slow-burningly creepy debut from writer-director Mike Flanagan, loyal, stolidly suburban Tricia (Courtney Bell) is trying to summon the courage to declare her long-missing husband Daniel “dead in absentia.” Come to help her pick up the pieces of her life is her younger sister Carrie (Kate Parker,) herself a one-time runaway, now a born again Christian.
