3.0 out of 5 stars Good Late Nite B movie Classic July 12, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Horrors of the Red Planet, AKA Wizard of Mars is a good "B" late night movie.
Typical old 60's Sci Fi movie with good plot, OK special effects "for the era", cheesey acting, bad actors no one ever heard of, etc, etc,
Astronauts in space flight near Mars are forced to make an emergency landing near the polar icecap of Mars after their ship is damaged by a Magnetic Storm.
They spend the next few days on a quest for the "Main Stage" apparently part of their ship jettisoned before the crash, to obtain supplies, oxygen etc. and stay alive till a rescue ship arrives.
They journey through a large series of caverns on their way south towards the Main Stage, actually this sequence was filmed in Carlsbad Caverns I believe.
They are threated by limited Oxygen, weird floating plant creatures, Hot Lava and lightning storms along the way.
As they finally reach what they think is their Main Stage that they have been tracking via it's radio beacon signal, they realize that it is just a wreck of an old space probe.
They discover it has some Oxygen left in the tanks, which saves the day, at least for the tme being.
You have to ask why would an unmanned probe be carring Oxygen anyway?
In the morning when the lightning storm clears they find the ruins of an ancient Martian city and set off to explore it.
They find the remains of Martians inside and end up conversing with an aparitian of the Martians collective spirit or whatever who explains the Martians history, the ruins of the city, etc, etc,
Our fearless band of astronauts end up helping the Martian spirit by starting up an ancient time machine of sorts, and are then transported back in time to before the Magnetic Storm that originally stranded them on Mars.
All in all a decent late night "B" movie.
My only complaint is the transfer to DVD is pretty bad.
I have this movie on VHS and the picture quality of the DVD is about the same.

2.0 out of 5 stars Classic Science Fiction stuff June 13, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To those who loves Classic Science Fiction films from the 60's, you are in
for a treat. This cheapo production still delivers as we have situations
happening in a spaceship and then on to a uncharted planet. There are creatures and martians and some descent cave scenes...but because the production possibly had a small budget....it shows. They used to show this movie late at night and now its part of my collection. If you dont
expect too much, you should enjoy this little flick that is sold at a great price. I only gave it 2 stars cause the female astronauts voice dubbing is the worse ive seen...

5.0 out of 5 stars My Mother played "DOROTHY", sooo... October 8, 2006
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
...how could I give this anything less than a 5 star rating? My mother, Eve Bernhardt, played "Dorothy" in this crazy cult film. I personally found it to be a great sleep aid for insomnia. Watching mom in her "gory daze" was rather fun just the same.

In the opening of this film, Mom's voice was dubbed over because of a 'spat' she and Roger Gentry got into over...well, let's just say Mom wouldn't agree to be Gentry's body pillow while they were on location.

Growing up, I was always witness to mom having shoulder and back pain. When I asked her why they hurt so often she replied,
"It's because of that damn astronaut suit they made me where in 'Mars'- the costume designer said I had no choice. They wanted an authentic astronaut costume, so that's what they made us wear. The thing weighed a ton. If I wanted to work with John Carradine- I didn't have a choice really ."

My mother wore the lug-nut suit for a month straight while she shot various scenes in all sorts of weather conditions and on various natural (beach coves) and in-studio sets.

In watching the film today, I find it remarkable that it took a month to shoot since it reminds me more of a film kids in high school might throw together one weekend and then stick on YouTube.

I give my mother props though. Listening to the strange experiences she had working on this film(remarkably they go beyond the nasty attitude of a very spoiled and virile Roger Gentry) is pretty cool.

Mom shared that John Carradine was particularly kind to her and she loved working with him- sadly, their 'big scene' which was the equivalent of 7 pages of script was edited out of the final cut.

3.0 out of 5 stars If this movie is so bad, why is it so expensive
If this movie is so bad, why is it so expensive? I love these old cheesy movies but am not prepared to pay $100 AUD for it. Can anybody explain as to why it is so expensive?
