This is one of the sequences on the surface of Mars shot in "Cinemagic." The astronauts encounter a very large native Martian life-form.
- Acting Appropriately Stupid
To Hell with Radiation! It's a Babe!
The Mars rocketship has landed. Is it radioactive? Wait a minute, the girl astronaut is coming out by herself. To hell with the radiation, let's go!
- Crummiest Ending
Yeah, Yeah, Blah, Blah, Blah...
Our peaceful, advanced civilization will destroy you.... If we don't bore you to death first with our preachy, heavy-handed voice-over message at the end of the film.
