Movie Info

The United States space program reports that its missing, overdue manned Mars probe has returned to Earth orbit, but that they haven't been able to make radio contact with it. When it is brought down by remote control, they find three of the four crewmembers aboard: one of them, Professor Gettell (Les Tremayne), is dead; another, mission commander Colonel Tom O'Bannion (Gerald Mohr), is in a coma and suffering from some kind of alien infection; and the third, exo-biologist Iris Ryan (Nora

Gimmicky sci-fi, outer space B-flick.

Very bad special effects mar this only-average s-f excursion. Only the giant rat-bat-whatever creature has any flair.

They don't make 'em like this anymore. It's easy to see why.

Audience Reviews for The Angry Red Planet

One of the many American International Pictures Sci-fi films to hit the drive - in theaters during the sixties. Is there some life form on Mars, maybe no the kind everyone thinks now days, but in 1959 Mars was Red so when we walked on mars during this movie everything was red. This is a film from the MGM Midnite Movie Series. Reason I watched it, The special effects are pretty cheap but he its 1959 and cheap was good. 4 stars

Nora Hayden is sexually harassed all the way to Mars and back. Worth seeing just for the rat-bat-spider!

Despite a decent cast, this 50s entry was poorly written and is neither exciting, suspenseful or that interesting. The red filter used on the camera lens while exploring on Mars was unique, but that alone does not compensate for this cheesy effort.
