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.

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.
