Critic Reviews for The Angry Red Planet
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.
