$2 Terror Tuesdays continue tonight (7/9) at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater with 1959’s TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE. Now while most parents may feel their teens are from another planet at times, this movie is about some teens who really were.
Teenagers from Outer Space is a 1959 independently made American black-and-white science fiction film released by Warner Bros. The film was produced, written, and directed by Tom Graeff. In the film, alien teenager Derek abandons his crew to search for a new life on Earth, while one of his crewmates is sent to kill him while they attempt to eradicate human life in order to farm Earth with giant lobster-like livestock they call Gargons.
For this film, all the dialogue was recorded first and the actors lip synced to it. This is the reverse of where actors usually record sound while filming and may have to go back into a sound stage to re-record dialogue and match the mouth movements on film.
The film was picked up by Warner Brothers for release because the studio needed a second film to be part of a double feature with a Godzilla sequel.
The showing starts at 7pm. Cost is $2.
