WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

On the last stretch of the first manned mission to Mars, a crew member discovers what seems to be bacterial evidence of alien life and, ignoring the orders of the rest of the crew as led by Vincent Campbell (Schreiber), goes out to collect more samples. However, when he goes missing, the crew attempts to recover the body but soon realise that danger is imminent…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The Last Days on Mars calls back to past low-budget sci-fi/horror hybrids like Alien, with a tense and sometimes suspenseful tone and legitimate scares to keep you from looking up to the stars.
