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.

Fine review of FIRST MAN ON MARS from CLUB DES MONSTRES, the amazing French genre site devoted to science fiction, horror and fantasy films.
Site is in French, but here is the core of the review in English – “Presented as a satire of small budget films with monsters presented in the American drive-ins in the 70s , the film is light and funny . Full of references, the coroner whose name is Fritz Leiber is a classic writer, popular movies and series of endorsements of its kind in that scene is reminiscent of the classic Hammer – Quatermass. The name of the cosmonaut, Cologne, recalls Carroon in Quatermass and we are obviously dealing with a fan of science fiction and B-cinema. All the characters are caricatures , except perhaps Porscha , the Bullets and Bimbos model that has a bit more brains than expected. The cast seemed to have fun. Some gore effects accumulate at the end of film while bikinis remain in place. Ideal for an evening with friends, pizza and beer.”
