In the latest review of our humble little sci-fi horror comedy, Bloody Flicks film critic Andy Wheeler draws a few connections to early Roger Corman films including Little Shop of Horrors and Creature from the Haunted Sea!
“The film is clearly an homage to Shlock horror and Director Mike Lyddon nails the look and feel of a Roger Corman film. The film is quite funny in parts and the gore level is decent enough even though the FX are a little ‘cheap’ they suit the film’s style perfectly.”
Philip Smolen, writer and critic for Rogue Cinema, gives First Man on Mars a rousing review in the latest issue.
“..writer/director Mike T. Lyddon opts for the silly and the sly wink from the opening credits, and this light touch helps the film merrily bounce along. Gory and goofy, ‘First Man on Mars’ is a pizza and six pack masterpiece.” Read the full review on Rogue Cinema by clicking HERE.
