The Film-makers of Mars

Review: “The Film-makers of Mars“, Geoff Ryman, 2008Film-makers of Mars

A weird, in parts creepy, take on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom.

You really only have to have read Burroughs’ A Princess of Mars to get the references.

A 40 reel adaptation of the story … from 1911!?

Fun, even if it’s too short, and worth a $1.

Though, probably because I recently read Available Dark with it Yuleboys, malicious spirits that show up at your house around Christmas, I particularly liked the other movie in this story: The Secret Life of Santa Claus.
