Send up of 1950's Sci-Fi movies
19 November 2006 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

Midnight Movie Massacre AKA Attack From Mars has plenty of bad points such as poor production values, bad taste humour and (at times) poor acting but in my view, at least, it still succeeds. The film and the spoof serial that the cinema goers are watching both capture the essence of the Atomic Age 50's. All the stereotypes are there and the movie gleefully sends them all up. The idea is original and the cast attack it with gusto. The humour may be a bit hit and miss but so was Blazing Saddles, humour is, after all, a matter of taste. All in all a fun movie to watch, with a group of friends, at midnight and massacre a case of beer.
