The Angry Red Planet ★★ Invasion of Mars; Journey to Planet Four 1959

An unintentionally amusing sci-fi adventure about astronauts on Mars fighting off aliens and giant, ship-swallowing amoebas. Filmed using bizarre “Cinemagic” process, which turns almost everything pink. Wild effects have earned the film cult status. 83m/C VHS, DVD .
