Martian Drive In Podcast 45 - The Outer Limits Of Harlan Ellison





Just for a change this time around, I take a look at the two episodes of The Outer Limits written by Harlan Ellison. Both from 1964, they are Soldier starring Michael Ansara and Lloyd Nolan and the classic Demon With A Glass Hand starring Robert Culp and Arlene Martel. Plus there's feedback disagreeing with me on Dark City.

Martian Drive In Podcast 44 - My Science Project Dark City




This time around, at the request of Elaine, a Patreon supporter of the podcast, I look at Dark City (1998) Alex Proyas' stylish science fiction mystery film and then for some fun we go back to 1985 for My Science Project. It's a funky Bali-Ha'i! Also, there's news from the planet Mars.

Martian Drive In Podcast 43 - The Brother From The Quatermass Xperiment



For forty three I look at one of Hammer's earliest SF movies, the 1955 remake of BBC's television serial The Quatermass Xperiment starring Brian Donlevy and Richard Wordsworth and then we fly to 1984 for John Sayles' refugee SF tale, The Brother From Another Planet, starring Joe Morton.

Phase iv lost ending

Martian Drive In Podcast 42 - It! Phase IV




This time, I look at a bugfuck crazy golem movie from 1967, It! starring Roddy McDowall and Jill Haworth then we get deep into science fiction weirdness with Saul Bass' 1974 Phase IV starring Nigel Davenport, Michael Murphy and Lynne Frederick. Golems and hyperintelligent ants. What more do you want?

Martian Drive In Podcast 41 - The Arrival Screamers





This time around I look at two movies from the mid-90s. B-Pictures but interesting. Firstly there is 1995's Screamers starring Peter Weller - a Canadian SF flick based on a Philip K Dick story, then David Twohey's The Arrival from 1996 starring Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Crouse. All that and feedback too.
