First Man on Mars review from Club des Monstres

club des monstres film review

First Man on Mars retro lobby card featuring mission control scientists Andy Reboul and Robert Gilchrist.

Nice review from Mario at Club des Monstres for the Reel Progress production of Mike T. Lyddon’s First Man on Mars, DVD now available for pre-order on Amazon!
Review is in French, here is an excerpt in English-
“Presented as a satire of small budget films with monsters presented in the American drive-ins in the 70s , the film is light and funny . Full of references, the coroner whose name is Fritz Leiber is a classic writer, popular movies and series of endorsements of its kind in that scene is reminiscent of the classic Hammer – Quatermass. The name of the cosmonaut, Cologne, recalls Carroon in Quatermass and we are obviously dealing with a fan of science fiction and B-cinema. All the characters are caricatures , except perhaps Porscha , the Bullets and Bimbos model that has a bit more brains than expected. The cast seemed to have fun. Some gore effects accumulate at the end of film while bikinis remain in place. Ideal for an evening with friends, pizza and beer.”
