* FlashbackWithinAFlashback: The movie opens with the lone survivor of a mission to transport a dangerous prisoner from a mining colony being found by Mars authorities, then she tells what happened to the government council in flashback. During the mission, after splitting up to investigate, one of her comrades suddenly shows up with three survivors from the colony, and he explains how he found them in another flashback. When he asks them what happened to the colony, this triggers ''another'' flashback where they explain how they inadvertently dug up the Martian ghosts.

It's 2176 and UsefulNotes/{{Mars}} has been [[{{Terraform}} terraformed]] to have a breathable atmosphere by some [[LadyLand matriarchal]] mining corporation. A crack-squad of SpacePolice consisting of Melanie Ballard (Creator/NatashaHenstridge), Jericho Butler (Creator/JasonStatham), Bashira Kincaid (Clea Duvall) and Helena Braddock (Creator/PamGrier) is sent to reallocate notorious criminal James "Desolation" Williams (Music/IceCube), only to discover that half the colony has been [[DemonicPossession possessed]] by the spirits of the alien race that used to inhabit Mars [[SealedEvilInACan which were released via a scientific excavation]], causing them to transform into a clan of sadomasochistic self-mutilating punk savages that look as if they're auditioning as extras for ''TheRoadWarrior'' and which murdered the other half. The rest of the movie is spent fighting them off.

* RecycledInSpace: It's basically John Carpenter's own ''Film/AssaultOnPrecinct131976'' '''ON MARS'''. Which means that, by extension, it's also ''Film/RioBravo'' '''ON MARS'''.
