In the spirit of classic serials and 50's sci-fi
21 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just recently discovered this web series. I've watched it through along with most of the behind-the-scenes videos that can be found online. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The director/writer says that their intention was to make a story that felt like the serials of the 1930s and the sci-fi movies of the 1950s and 1960s. I think they succeeded admirably. The story is suspenseful where it should be, scary and exciting, and even gives the characters a bit of dimension; all of it squeezed into six to ten minute episodes. I very much liked that it was in black and white. It was perfect for this story. The VFX are not elaborate but still quite striking. The production, props, costumes, etc. are excellent for a low budget, independent film. I had not seen the actors before but they were very professional and fit their parts.

I highly recommend "The Mercury Men." My only complaint is that there is not more. Although this story is complete there is also a cliff hanger that sets us up for another. I'm ready to see that right now.
