The first spaceship to Mars, presumed lost, is found in space and brought back to Earth by remote control. Only two from an initial crew of four are still alive, but one is unconscious due to an attached alien growth, while the other is traumatized, blocking out all memory of what happened. In hopes to save the unconscious crewman, the amnesiac is interrogated back into remembering. Those in charge thereby learn of the terrible dangers awaiting anyone venturing into the spooky, ruddy stillness of the very alien Martian ecosystem.Written by
At one point, during the shooting of the film, the title was "Invasion Mars". (see Ib Melchior: Man of Imagination by Robert Skotak) See more »
The 'Cinemagic Process' showed the entire planet to be bathed in red light (hence, The Angry Red Planet.) Every scene where someone looks out the porthole of the spaceship, it shows a blue sky. See more »
Dr. Iris 'Irish' Ryan:
[confused as to why O'Bannion keeps calling her "Irish" instead of her name]
I never know if you're calling me by name or nationality.
Col. Thomas O'Bannion:
When I call you by your name... you'll know it.

This movie is funny and painful at the same time. The "Cinemagic" almost gave me a seizure. Despite what they imply, "Cinemagic" is not some innovative technical procedure. It was "developed" as the result of an accident, and they used it because it disguised the fact that their "monsters" were so stupid-looking. I also don't think it's a coincidence that the writer is Sid "Pink".
This movie is good for a laugh, if you are really looking for a movie made in 9 days on 200,000 dollars. It is entertaining; at least I can say that about it. The bat/rat/spider is the highlight.
