Audience Reviews for Lobster Man from Mars

Remaking a 50's alien monster movie is something of a go-to idea as those shoddily beloved flicks were so memorable but like just about every one of these tributes it misses the mark wildly. Curtis is about the only thing worth watching the movie for, he seems to be having enormous fun just being himself, tooling around and laughing to himself that he gets paid for this. 1 star for the movie, 4 stars for seeing Curtis enjoy himself.

It is understood this is a spoof, and I usually like campy spoofs, but this one wasn't funny, very stupid but not in an enjoyable way. Corny and dumb, even with a decent cast.
