Sci-Fi with spiritual significance, 20 September 2007
Author: petersgrgm from United States

I enjoyed Teenagers from Outer Space in that there is a spiritual significance to it. Admittedly, I saw the whole thing but recently, as when I saw it on TV March 19, 1965, I caught it in the middle of it, after my kid brother had turned it on.

Most of all, at the end he steered the ships bearing more Gargons to one spot to crash onto the guide ship-- which killed all of them, including himself! Looking down from the sky, he declared his intention to make the earth his home, and never leave it. You do not find too many as noble and u
