A secret mission. A horrifying discovery. The countdown to terror has begun!
In 2003 billionaire astronaut Eli Cologne began his journey through space to become the first man on Mars, but something went horribly wrong… Infected by an alien organism on the red planet, he returned to Earth a crazed, savage monster with an unquenchable thirst for human flesh.
The space craft crashed undetected in a remote part of Louisiana during Hurricane Katrina, and he’s been hunting both human and animal prey in the swamps for years. Beautiful yet domineering scientist Dr. Martine Munro was in charge of the Mars Mission and Eli Cologne’s secret lover. Now that she’s received a signal from the transmitter on the lost space craft, she and a few bumbling, nerdy scientists head to the sleepy town of Black Bayou in search of the lost astronaut.
For small town sheriff Dick Ruffman, it’s a race against time to find the man-turned-monster before he kills again in this horrifying and hilarious satire of low budget drive-in grindhouse creature features from the 1970’s. Click HERE to watch First Man on Mars for a measly 1.99!

We lost one of modern America’s great cultural icons on November 12. Stan Lee was perhaps the most influential name in comic books but many do not realize he was editor-in-chief during Atlas / Marvel’s late 1940’s – early 1950’s pre-code comic book run. During that time, Stan helmed and wrote many of the horror anthology titles and published 100’s of different issues dwarfing the output of competitor, EC Comics.
The pre-code horror enthusiasts at Ghost Clinic have been posting many of the comic book covers and titles on their Facebook page over the last month and have written up a nice little tribute to the pre-code Stan Lee on their official blog.
Ghost Clinic Films, the documentary division of Reel Progress LLC, presents trailer #1 for Mike Lyddon’s forthcoming documentary about pre-code horror comic books of the 1940’s – 50’s HAUNTED THRILLS (2019) featuring interviews with original pre-code artists Everett Raymond Kinstler, Joe Sinnott and Vic Carrabotta.
Many golden age/atom age artists spotlighted including Matt Baker, Russ Heath, Iger Shop, Basil Wolverton, Lee Elias, L.B. Cole and more.
Haunted Thrills will be on the comic con and film festival circuit for the better half of 2019.
