Storyline

The Martians don't actually are actually protecting themselves from US!!!... since the Earth probe landed on their planet they are taking measures to ensure their security by replacing our scientists with doppelgangers who report nothing. A very insightful film that was under-rated and ahead of it's time, with a 1963 vision of a primitive mars rover. Written by fletch

The 'Marienbad' of Sci Fi ?
9 February 2007 | by (Manchester ,England) – See all my reviews

The perpetrators of this confused, yet strangely effective low budget sci fi 'thriller' had obviously seen Alan Resnais' Last Year In Marienbad the night before shooting started. The interminable tracking through the estate was obviously lifted from Resnais' confuserama, one of my favourite movies, and the blandness of the acting, while probably not deliberate as it was in the classic French movie, means that you can't take your eyes off the screen, in case anything actually happens, which it very rarely does. The two movies would make a weird, but engrossing double feature. I'm very concerned now, because I LIKE both movies a lot. Strange ?
