Storyline

Young film student tries to sell his weird movie to a desparate film producer who is in need of a tax write-off. The producer screens the film "Lobster Man From Mars". What follows is one of the most bizarre and funny film within-a-film sendups: Mars suffers from an air leakage, and send the dreaded Lobster Man to Earth to steal its air. The plot is foiled by a mad scientist, a girl, and an army colonel. The producer buys the movie, but it makes a huge profit and the producer is sent to jail, with the film student taking his place as the studio hot shot Written by <stanley@brainex.com>

So bad it was hilarious...
25 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, I wasn't really expecting to be wowed by this movie, but it turned out to be the funniest movie I've seen in a long time. I rented it mainly because of the title. After all, who doesn't want to see a movie named "Lobster Man from Mars"? I settled down with some friends and chocolate, and had the most laugh out loud night.

This movie is filled with ridiculous moments, akin to the old fifties Scifi movies, complete with a badly costumed lobster who's face keeps changing between scenes. The acting isn't that good, but then again, it really isn't meant to be. This is the perfect movie to watch when you want to have a good time, and if you're full of too much energy.
