Teenagers From Outer Space


Teenagers From Outer Space [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ]
Teenagers from Outer Space on MST3K [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 ]

I think that this is the first science fiction move that I ever saw, and I was such a little kid at the time that the scene where one of the Teenagers From Outer Space vaporizes a small dog with his futuristic ray gun really scared the crap out of me! I Even remember that it was on TV on a Sunday morning, and how strange I thought it was that they were playing such a creepy movie on a Sunday in the morning. I have loved science fiction films ever since, especially the really cheesy ones. You can watch the entire film in it's original form, or in the enhanced Mystery Science Theater 3000 version!

Teenagers IN Outer Space. Now that's a thought. Or, Teenagers Forced to Cook for Family, or Teenagers Learn To Pick Up Wet Towels Before They Marry, or... I think there are many version of this movie that could please adults and scare the crap out of teenagers.

I think the title of this movie is redundant, same thing as Neocons From Hell!, for example.

How can you not love a movie with giant mutant lobsters?

It's inconceivable!

I remember that movie and that Sunday morning. When the little dog got turned into a skeleton, I ran out of the room crying to find my dog, Casey, to make sure he was all right.

Here's part 1 of the MST3K version:

Dr. Ziaus, I'm falling in love with you. it's all in the words. Have so enjoyed your comments at my place regarding the murder of extraneous and unnecessary husbands. Redundancies everywhere. Hi Germaine. I love you, too. But you know that don't you?

Utah Savage: Indeed! How about "Teenagers Eat Their Vegetables Without Complaining, and Then Do the Dishes"? I think it would be a box office smash!

Randal Graves: Ha! I can't top that line. :o)

MWB: Agreed! Giant mutant lobsters are the best!

Kevin: It's funny that that scene seems so dated and silly now. When I was kid, it scared the bejeezus out of me!

The Ardent Thread: I agree! I wore a bib throughout the film, and had extra clarified butter and lemon juice at the ready!

ThoughtCriminal: Ha! Great choice! I love Joy Harmon. I shall post it later in the week. :o)

Distributorcap: James Dean was in this movie! He played one of the skeletons.

Utah Savage: "Extraneous and unnecessary husbands"...? Is there really any other kind? ;o)

Mystery Science Theater did that one proud.
