In 1974, four astronauts, silver shoe-clad Dorothy, overweight Doc, goofy Charlie, and wooden Steve, crash land on Mars when taking readings, with only four days of supplies. They must try to survive on the surface, which is barren except for some canals with huge maggots with fins. After embarking through a golden igneous cavern, braving a storm and finding an unmanned Earth vessel, they discover a golden road which leads them to the unchanging ruins of what was once a beautiful Martian city. The Martians are modeled on the Flatheads of Oz, and their collective consciousness, the "Wizard," forbids them to leave until they perform a very small task... Written by

This movie is terrible!! A few astronauts crash on Mars, and wander around for about an hour (with very little dialog). After watching these guys wander around they follow a yellow brick road to a castle full of cheap frozen martians. There they meet The Wizard of Mars, played convincingly by John Carradine's dissembodied head. Then John Carradine starts talking for about 5 hours and helps these astronauts get home with some weird clock-thing. Other than that, I can think of absolutely nothing to say about this movie other than don't watch it.
But, on the other hand, if you've only got 80 minutes to live...watch this movie. It will feel like an eternity.
