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>

A funny little spoof.
28 December 2002 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

Yes, this is a stupid movie, but it was intentionally stupid, so how can you go wrong? this movie actually is quite funny, and has some humor that might be over some audience's head. Funny and enjoy-able.
