When Kathy is on the bed her head changes position between shots; in the wider shot she is looking away from the window, in the close up towards it. Simultaneously, in the wide shot the 'monster' is to the left hand side of the window but in the close up that follows, he has jumped to the right. See more »
This is not a classic by any means, and it shouldn't be expected to be one. The 1950's gave us simple, cheesy fun from more innocent times (which we could all use again).
TEENAGE MONSTER succeeds in providing us with all the things we love in these half-baked films: A laughable monster, former Universal Forties film star Anne Gwynne looking embarassed just having to BE in it, and a scant running time of just over 60 minutes that breezes by with good, clean fun. I'll watch this over a a true modern piece of manure (like 1999's THE MUMMY) any day.
