"Zombies of the Stratosphere" is for the lovers of old serials, those incredibly fun and silly episodic films that kept our parents and grandparents coming back to the theater week-after-week. Over the course of 12 episodes (plus original theatrical trailer), watch security agent Larry Martin, who can fly with an experimental rocket suit, and his cohort Bob Wilson, try to save the earth from the evil Martians. Can Larry and Bob thwart the villainous Martians plan to blast our planet out of its orbit and replace it with their own? Why are some earthlings conspiring with their dastardly plot? Not a zombie in sight... but you will find "Mr. Spock" Leonard Nimoy, who got his start right here! Produced on a miniscule budget, "Zombies of the Stratosphere" still offered a weekly injection of action and adventure in the Saturday matinee! Relying on story and creativity, the serial still delivers a punch without earth-splitting explosions, computerized special effects or tough-guy one-liners.
