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
Filmed at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, California. Two years after this film was made, The City of Beverly Hills purchased the mansion in 1965. It was made into a public park in 1971. Tours are available from 10am to 5pm. Look online for dates and times. See more »
When the robot devise is starting out there is some fog or mist drifting through Mars atmosphere. Then when it malfunctions smoke is rising up from it and flames shoot out from beneath it. More smoke is seen wafting up from the pile of debris after the devise is destroyed. All of this would indicate an atmosphere containing at least some oxygen yet Mars lost it's atmosphere a long time ago. And apparently the device doesn't take samples of the atmosphere as only soil samples are mentioned in the letter he is dictating. See more »

Don't kid yourself as this is a very low budget shocker.But it is a shocker and a pleasant one at that.99% of the film is shot in one location but what a location!
A scientist with a troubled marriage sends a probe to Mars.Unknown to all concerned the probe sends back a little something,namely Martians as invisible energy beings.They become doppelgangers of the scientist and his family. Their mission is clear;to stop earth from travelling to Mars.(They like their high property values obviously).The Martians play havoc with his home life until the very end.
A small budget flick with an appealing cast of old pros.Quickly paced and well written by Harry Spaulding.Even a downbeat ending to add to the menace.Better than average and worth a look in a forgiving mood.
