Goofs

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 »

This movie is the prime example of 50s B movie sci-fi.
4 July 2004 | by ChuckStraubSee all my reviews

This film is a prime example of the low budget 1950s B movie sci-fi. This movie is the 50s and that's the best reason of why you should see it. Anyone who is interested in 50s sci-fi, has to see Teenagers From Outer Space. The flaws are so numerous they can't be counted, and the acting is as bad as the script. The only monsters in the movie are the Gargons, which are lobsters. Apart from these flaws, Teenagers From Outer Space is a fun movie. I've watched it several times and find it very entertaining. The alien's death ray gun is quite impressive, as are the scenes in which it is used. View this movie remembering it is 1959. I would think this film would have been quite popular and very scary back then. Sit down, relax and get a bowl of popcorn. Pop in the DVD or VCR and have a good time watching this fun, exciting 1950s sci-fi thriller.
