Ghosts of Mars (2001)

Ghosts of Mars

Directed by John Carpenter

2001 • R • English • 98 min.

Horror and sci-fi directing legend John Carpenter never shied away from his fondness for classic westerns. He kind of made a secret western with Ghosts of Mars, which is basically a cowboys-and-Indians movie dressed up as a haunted-alien-planet movie, with a little Rashomon-style unreliable narration thrown in for good measure.

Cast: Natasha Henstridge, Ice Cube, Pam Grier
