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!
