Teenagers From Outer Space: 31 Days of Classic Horror Cinema on Xanaland


Well, it can't be any worse than living in Detroit! 

As usual, I'm relying on WiKi to break it down for us!  No point in trying to come up with a witty review of a cult film that you must see for yourself....

Teenagers from Outer Space is a 1959 science-fiction film about an extraterrestrial space ship landing on Earth to use it as a farm for its foodsupply. The crew of the ship includes teenagers, two of whom oppose each other in their activities. The independent film was originally distributed byWarner Brothers. The film was later featured in episodes of both Mystery Science Theater 3000 and the nationally syndicated B-movie TV show Off Beat Cinema.

Furthermore...here's part of the wild and crazy plot....

An alien spacecraft comes to Earth, while searching the galaxy for a planet suitable to raise "gargons," a lobster-like (but air-breathing) creature which is a delicacy on their homeworld. Thor (Bryan Grant), the lead alien, shows his contempt for Earth's creatures by vaporizing a dog named Sparky. Crewmember Derek (David Love), after discovering an inscription on Sparky's dog tag, fears that the gargon might destroy Earth's local inhabitants, making the other spacemen scoff. Being members of the "supreme race", they disdain "foreign beings," no matter how intelligent and pride themselves that families and friendships are forbidden on their world. Derek turns out to be a member of an underground which commemorates more humane periods of his world's history.


I am totally convinced I need to see this! 


The whole lobster thing is already creeping me out! 


 So put another log on this fake fire I have provided, snuggle up with your fake girlfriend, and enjoy! 


Now isn't that nice......
