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
The 40-foot alien monster was actually a marionette about 15 inches high. It was essentially a combination of a rat, bat, spider, and crab. See more »
We are left to assume that four trained scientists - one of whom comments that its leg-shaped "trees" are at least 40 feet high - fail to notice the rat-bat-spider-crab monster standing in the midst of an otherwise empty plain. See more »
"The Angry Red Planet" will be a treat for anyone who admires sci-fi flicks from the '50s and early '60s. Basically, a group of astronauts travels to Mars looking for life. They find an over-sized being which appears to be a cross between a rat and a spider. And the Munchkin mayor from "The Wizard of Oz".
I guess that there's nothing particularly unique about this movie; that era yielded many movies about people finding things in outer space. But like I said, if you have a special affinity for old-fashioned B-movies, then this is the movie for you. Watching the DVD with Spanish subtitles makes it even more interesting.
