Nine men and women, employees of Interplanetary Corporation, live and work on Mars. Their days aren't particularly interesting, much less exciting, until they are assaulted by a murderous band of strangers and a seemingly unstoppable alien creature. Do these attacks have anything to do with the Martian fossil recently uncovered by one of the employees? Will the rapidly increasing body count adversely affect Interplanetary's stock price? And can anyone survive long enough to fill out the inevitable paperwork?

It had sort of a Ed Wood vibe to it. A low budget movie that poked fun at all sorts of things, and had an understated, intelligence to some of the humor. Even the parts when you watch a news broadcast, if you watch the scrolling words on the bottom, you see some rye/dry humor too. You might only care to watch it once, unless you are thee type who likes to spot little mistakes, find a Easter egg or two in the film. Or to pick out the less than obvious details within a film/this film…
I actually found that I liked this movie more than I thought I would. It's worth watching, at least once.
I would like to add too, that I do like the thing Amazon does with showing the cast of a movie, and a little bio about them. Also enjoy the "Trivia" part, which shows mistakes made and when you can find them. Or they point out little mistakes or factual errors. I really enjoy that little extra, just a shame that some don't have them, or are incomplete, like no pictures at all. But it is a nice touch.
There are a couple of quick shots of upper nudity on women, and some profanity. There are a few shots of (unrealistic) blood and gore. I don't want to give too much away story wise. I doubt you would watch this more than once, so rent it on a slow night. It is what it is.
This movie is full of good things. It's very low budget and takes huge advantage of that. Rather than depict the future as something somber and serious, this movie lets the characters be very down-to-earth and human. Right at the start we're treated to the sight of Michelle, the space nympho, wandering around nude but for a fishbowl-shaped space helmet, looking for someone to perform the "docking maneuve." There's a mechanic named Beth who always carries a bag of pot around with her—Space Pot! And there's a wicked looking alien on the loose to. A lot of people compare the comedy in this movie to The Office, and it's a very good comparison. Also, there's no effort to conceal the fact that this movie must have been made in the South. Heavy accents all around.
I'm giving it five stars because I just enjoyed it so much and have found myself watching it again and again.

The film begins with an artifact find and murders then goes into a 60s type advert for Mars Base 2. We then see the people who work on the base including a few topless scenes. It's a mixed bunch of folks. Things get interesting when a rocket attack kills a worker. This is a Sci-Fi mystery flick. Slow paced with various nods to the famous space type flicks of the past. We have to wait for the last act to see a fair amount of blood and gore when the alien monster causes mayhem. I thought it was quite an entertaining and fun view for a low budget sci-fi with horror. It's well written with some amusing scenes and dialogue but it's all taken seriously. Not as good as the director's last flick Hide & Creep [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC ] but that was a total horror fun flick with zombies. (Was released twice with a better version and extras on the re-releasse)
Extras include a com and trailers. USA Release but plays Region zero.
