Did You Know?

Trivia:
The filmmaker was on such a tight budget that the film's ultimate weapon, the "focusing disintegrator", was actually a Hubley's Atomic Disintegrator toy cap gun, bought for a dime, with a flashbulb added as a beam. (In some scenes the words "Hubley's" can clearly be seen embossed on the side of the gun.) Atomic Disintegrators can be bought today on eBay for upwards of $300.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: During the "ending" car chase, Joe Rogers' (the reporter) hat is different while he is driving the car as opposed to when he is outside the car before the chase and after the chase. The hat before and after the chase has a brim which is UP in the back and DOWN in the front. However, when the scene cuts to the interior of him driving the car, his hat's brim is UP both in the front and the back.See more »

Teenagers?, 15 May 2006
Author: Lee Eisenberg (lee.eisenberg.pdx@gmail.com) from Portland, Oregon, USA

My 10/10 rating assumes that you're the type who's decided that you like "Teenagers from Outer Space" before watching it. It portrays an alien race coming to earth to let their lobster monsters grow and devour all humans. As an example of what these aliens are like, they have disintegrating guns that can turn you into a skeleton in the time that it takes to blink. But, one of the aliens named Derek (David Love) decides that he doesn't like their plans and escapes. Most of the rest of the movie has another alien looking for Derek while the latter hides out with human Betty Morgan (Dawn Anderson) and her grandfather.

Yeah, it sounds like your average '50s B-movie, but it's still really neat. One of the many movies that truly makes one nostalgic for the era when one could go to the drive-in and see these sorts of flicks, mainly because Betty was kinda hot (well, duh; it seems like all the women in these B-movies were). And I don't think that the aliens were actually teenagers.

Still, I can't quite figure out: why would an alien be named Derek?
