DVD: The Flaming Lips, Christmas on Mars, (Warner Bros)

Click to follow

A woman incubating a foetus in a yolk sac? A marching band with vaginas for heads? It could only be the Flaming Lips' movie debut. It's Christmas Eve, and the crew of a Mars research base are going slowly mad.

Worse, their oxygen generator is broken and they face certain death. Bang on cue, a green alien (Wayne Coyne) arrives, dons a Santa suit and makes everything OK. Shot mainly in black and white, with a cast consisting of band and friends, 'Christmas on Mars' deserves cult status for years to come.
