Trivia

Although Warner Bros. distributed this ultra-low-budget sci-fi film, it was definitely not a Warner Bros. production. The studio needed a genre film to play as the second feature with the Godzilla sequel it was releasing under the title Godzilla Raids Again (1955) and bought this from producer Tom Graeff.

Goofs

The teenagers speak English so we the viewers can understand them, but arriving from outer space with suitcase like instruments is another thing. When they first exit their ship and set up their instruments to take readings, one of the suitcases even labeled inside as a "Multi-Channel Mixer". See more »

in defense of 'teenagers'
24 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'teenagers from out of space' has grown on me a LOT since the first time i saw it. true, it isn't a very good movie, but considering how they used what little they had to work with (budget-wise, acing-wise, etc.) i'd say this movie deserves a bit more respect. the effects were cleverly planned (if not well-executed), the fairly inexperienced actors weren't terrible ( except for TORCHA! guy, but he's so bad he's great), and it had a decent plot with a fairly atypical ending. (okay, there's no excuse for the lobster. the lobster was just terrible.) it's no 'godfather' (heck, it's not even 'cannibal: the musical'), but, in the vein of 'night of the living dead', 'teenagers' takes very little and makes something decent with it.
