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:
Factual errors: When Dr. Brandt removes the two bullets from Thor's shoulder, the bullets are not only 'pristine' and not the least deformed, they also still have the shell casings still on.See more »
Quotes:
Thor:[in pain on the hospital bed, and being surged] The captain should have let me kill you when I had a chance!
Derek:And why didn't he? I saw him stop you when you fired at me.
Thor:Because... because he just learned that... that you are the son of our leader.

in defense of 'teenagers', 24 February 2006
Author: cthuluflakes from United States

'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.
