Eight Incredible Indie Movies from 2016

Reel Progress is pleased to announce the inclusion of indie sci-fi horror comedy FIRST MAN ON MARS in Philip Smolen’s 4th Annual PS Awards.  Naming FMOM as one of the eight incredible indie movies of 2016, the Rogue Cinema film critic says Lyddon fills the movie with wonderful touch points to classic drive-in cinematic fodder and he even names some of his characters after actors, writers and directors from those drive-in days (including Fritz Leiber, Don Dohler, Martine Beswick and Caroline Munro). Gory and goofy, “First Man on Mars” is a pizza and six pack masterpiece!

Bloody Good Review from Bloody Flicks

review of first man on marsIn 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.”
