Episode #018 – Ten Seconds to Hell

March 4, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Thanks to Casey’s birthday month pick, the Down Placers only have . . . Ten Seconds to Hell (dir. Robert Aldrich). This 1959 Hammer film stars Jack Palance, believe it or not, and is a stark departure from what one might expect from the studio responsible for films like Horror of Dracula or The Quatermass X-Periment. Is Ten Seconds to Hell a bomb, or can the Down Placers defuse the film?
