Movie Info

Creatures from outer space come to Earth after searching the universe for an ideal home. Their mission is to find grazing territory for their livestock of gargons. The gargons are crab like land crustaceans that grow as big as a house in a day. Naturally, they find humans more appetizing than grass, and a good alien helps the Earthlings battle the evil forces with their disintegrating ray gun.

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.

DVD Verdict

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

For a cheap sci fi flick, Teenagers From Outer Space is actually not so bad given the budget. I thought the use of skeleton was quite funny in a good way, though they really needed to improve some of the dialogues and remove the conservative propaganda.

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.

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. Photobucket
