This is an intelligent and engaging sci-fi thriller that's well worth checking out. Also, did we mention the space zombies?

Manages to break free from its low-budget limitations but is hamstrung by its own love of the genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

... fairly elemental sci-fier from UK that, during its creepier moments, will remind genre buffs of Hammer's top-drawer Quatermass series.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
Brian Orndorf

Doesn't overwhelm in the least, but it retains a certain dependability and a sharp pace, finding some energy to well-worn genre routine.

Lean, muscular and on the money, The Last Days on Mars takes a familiar story and tells it so tautly that we are pleased to be on board.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium
December 4, 2013
A fun retro-style sci-fi/horror hybrid. Like a lost eighties Alien-clone, but in a good way.

The first half plays out by the numbers, with undead astronauts popping open the fragile bubble protecting the crew, but there's some grandeur to the second ...

Far more sober than that premise suggests, the unapologetically derivative sci-fi outing doesn't have the scripting muscle to deliver on its early promise. But the solid cast keeps it reasonably gripping nonetheless.

From the get-go, Last Days on Mars looks like a film which the parties involved put about half their effort and care into.
James White
SFX Magazine
April 14, 2014
Once danger presents itself and the screaming starts, it all becomes a basic space horror film that plucks tropes from the peg and rarely does anything interesting with them.

Our band of estimable actors have to contend with a storm of B-movie dialogue and the remorseless hammer blows of a stock horror plot line.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Digital Spy
April 12, 2014
Consistently solid acting, smart direction and striking imagery cannot overcome a hackneyed storyline that cobbles together stale ideas and scenarios to a fittingly alienating effect.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

This sci-fi drama begins promisingly but loses its way in the Martian dust.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Even at 98 minutes, the whole thing lasts way too long.

You've never seen the red planet looking quite as humdrum as the one in The Last Days on Mars.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
William Thomas
Empire Magazine

A sci-fi horror dimmer than the dark side of the moon.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Escapist sci-fi meets horror hybrid...
