First Man in Mars is totally different from the previous anthology movies they did and I'm not into the old b-movies that much, but it did have some very funny scenes. The scientists and the coroner were goofy and fun kind of like a slapstick comedy and the soundtrack music was perfect for those scenes. I thought it was funny how everyone was playing it for laughs except the sheriff and deputy who seemed to be the "straight" characters. As a Lovecraft fan I did catch the whole cult reference when the cute black girl finds the cabin in the woods. I loved the tape recording and the suspense of that scene which is as much as I'm going to say about it. I give it a strong 5 even though it's not my kind of horror film. I understand it was a satire of those low budget movies and thought it had several funny scenes.
