In 1952, Republic Pictures was struggling. Their famous "movie serials" were losing attendence and fans to the new medium of television. Trying to cash in on the sci-fi craze, Republic presented one of the final movie serials ZOMBIES OF THE STRATOSPHERE Starring Judd Holdren, Lane Bradford, and in his first role... Leonard Nemoy, This serial tells the story of a diobolical ailen trying to create an H-Bomb explosion to blow Earth out of it's orbit so his planet can take it's place. Only Larry Martin can stop him, with the aid of his amazing rocketpack.
This serial takes advantage of Republic's greatest reasouce, Stuntmen and special effects. Larry Martin and his rocketsuit flying through the air is really little mroe than a dummy on wires. This classic matinee serial has been colorized and slightly edited to create an amazing improved version of this crazy sci-fi classic. After all, Green Faced Martians in Purple Suits in a Pink rocketship, It's hard not to have fun! If you're looking for a fun nostalgic trip into the past, you can't go wrong with ZOMBIES OF THE STRATOSPHERE.
