Movie Info

This off-the-wall, low-budget sci-fi film was written, produced, directed, edited, photographed, and acted (one role) by Tom Graeff. The unlikely story concerns a spaceship that lands on Earth from somewhere a lot less accommodating. On board are the space aliens' grazing animals, the gorgons. These are huge, crab-like monsters that quickly balloon up to a gigantic size and then proceed to devour any humans in sight. Soon the space aliens are split between the loner who would rather forget the

If the concept of a giant lobster tickles your fancy, worry not.

Endearingly silly entry in the so-bad-it's-good genre of Grade Z filmmaking.

beware of the GARGON! and the alien named Derek.

The acting in Teenagers from Outer Space is particularly bad - and the source of most of the movie's unintended hilarity . . .

Audience Reviews for Teenagers From Outer Space

I half liked this movie and half didn't like it. The story is interesting even though it's cheesy, but it gets less interesting as it goes on. Overall, it's just okay.

Pure comedy/sci-fi genius. Cheap, tacky and pretty damn awful. But with lobsters for monsters, people turning into skeletons and of course Grandpa trying to cross the road, it's a forgotten classic.

One of the great unintentionally hilarious B-movies from the 50s. This one features a teenage alien be terrorised by a giant lobster, or rather the shadow of a regular lobster. Yes, the acting is pretty bad and the effects even worse but if it's laughs your after you can't go wrong.
