The first spaceship to Mars, presumed lost, is found in space and brought back to Earth by remote control. Only two from an initial crew of four are still alive, but one is unconscious due to an attached alien growth, while the other is traumatized, blocking out all memory of what happened. In hopes to save the unconscious crewman, the amnesiac is interrogated back into remembering. Those in charge thereby learn of the terrible dangers awaiting anyone venturing into the spooky, ruddy stillness of the very alien Martian ecosystem. Written by
This is definitely one movie I grew up watching when I was a kid. The acting may be bad and the science may be convoluted, but it is still a fun ride. You know you are going to have a good B movie when Les Tremayne, who was in so many B's during the 60's, is one of the stars. Also, did you ever notice that the mail crew members were in wing tips? At least they flew in space in style. Also, the character of Dr. Ryan is supposed to have earned respect with her degree, but she is constantly referred to as the girl, but then again, this was the early sixties and what good b-flick doesn't have a female scientist that is all business until she's in peril and then she becomes the typical damsel in distress. This film isn't great, but it definitely is fun.
