The Evil Blogger conjures up a hilarious and in-depth review of science fiction horror satire FIRST MAN ON MARS!
See the full review on It’s Bloggin’ Evil.
“Every actor executes the swallowing of pride process to extend verbal and physical indirect comedy that purely goes hand-in-hand with this sort of satirical storyline constructed from the certifiable portions of Mike Lyddon’s brain that might or might not be sizzling on an illegal and dangerous narcotic.”

UK horror site BLOODY FLICKS gives FIRST MAN ON MARS a mutated thumbs up! Film critic Andy Wheeler writes – “There’s many nods to the drive in sci-fi horror films from the 50’s to the 70’s, in particular Corman’s early films like Little Shop of Horrors and Creature from the Haunted Sea. It’s a bit of a blast if you like your thrills cheap, gory and fun!”

In the latest review of FIRST MAN ON MARS, writer Philip Smolen of Rogue Cinema says “The film is full of tongue in cheek performances. Marcelle Shaneyfelt is a panic as Dr. Martine Munro. She plays the scientist as a haughty know-it-all bitch who’s blinded by her love of Cologne. Joey Harmon and Sam Cobean are good as Munro’s scientific lackeys. Kelly Murtagh is also a hoot as a Russian bikini model who’s posing for the latest issue of ‘Bullets and Bimbos’ magazine out in the Louisiana swamp.”
“Writer/director Lyddon knows his cinematic roots, and while he doesn’t stray far from the monster on the loose formula, he makes sure that his flick has a lot of reference points for classic movie monster lovers to enjoy.”
