Teenagers From Outer Space
About Teenagers From Outer Space
Indie filmmaker Tom Graeff, inspired to make his own movie after completing a grip job on Roger Corman’s Not of This Earth, convinced monster maker Paul Blaisdell to design the dime store ray gun mirror-reflective gags and the beat-up spray-painted flying saucer shell with the visible crack in it for his magnum opus, which has belatedly attained cult status. Graeff is onscreen in a small role as a reporter. A five minute cutdown of this has been a staple of The Movie Orgy since forever. An in-depth post-mortem on Graeff and his movie can be found here: The Out-Loud Life And Silent Death Of ‘Teenagers From Outer Space’ Creator Tom Graeff – Happy Nice Time People.
