Movie Info

A meteor crashes somewhere in the West, killing a miner named Cannon (Jim McCullough). The miner's son Charles (Stephen Parker) survives the ordeal, but grows into a hairy, bestial moron, given to killing sheep, cattle and stray humans. Charles is protected by his long-suffering mother Ruth (Anne Gwynne), who does her best to clean up her son's messes. When mercenary waitress Kathy (Gloria Castillo) learns of Charles' existence, she blackmails Ruth to secure her silence. Kathy also goads Charles into killing a few of her own enemies, leading him on by pretending to be in love with him (a BIG mistake!) Originally (and subsequently) titled Meteor Monster, this tacky little sci-fier was originally released on a double bill with The Brain From Planet Arous.more

Audience Reviews for Teenage Monster

This is a sad excuse for a horror movie, do westerns and horror movies mix, like oil and water when you look at this movie. Wasted 65 minutes of my time, A UFO falls to the earth (Looked like a 4th July Sparkler to me). And kills a father and somehow changes a young boy into a monster. Funny throughout the whole movie no one says hey what ever happen to your boy after your husband died. The son who is now a monster runs around kill people in town, then behind every good monster is a evil women, and in this movie that there is no exception. Finally in the last 4 minutes I can understand what the boy is saying, You lied, I hate You, I'll Kill you, that?s it after evil girl, and monster fall off cliff, Mom cry's out my boy, and the sheriff says her boy. Final scene is Mon getting ready to jump and join her boy but the sheriff and deputy save her, that?s it, no riding off in the sunset happily ever after, it suxs. Don't even take a free copy.
