UK Review of First Man on Mars

UK site HorrorScreams VideoVault reviews First Man on Mars!
An enjoyable film for those who like to watch campy flicks in the same vein as the 70’s grindhouse features or just enjoy B-movie style creature features. Revel in the humour that Lyddon has crafted which is a bit hit or miss depending on your tastes. FIRST MAN ON MARS is best described as THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN for the 21st century.

UK Horror Scene Reviews First Man on Mars

retro lobby card first man on marsCheck out this hilarious and heartfelt review of FIRST MAN ON MARS from the British genre site UK HORROR SCENE.
“First Man on Mars is a funny parody of 1950s B-movies and 70’s schlock. There is so much fun packed into this cheap little movie, the laughs just keep coming, though admittedly most of them are pretty low-brow. But everything from the first frame of the film is designed to be bad and it succeeds at being bad wonderfully.”

First Man on Mars review from Club des Monstres

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.”
