YMMV: Teenagers from Outer Space
  • Fridge Logic: Why was Betty's puppy running around that quarry?
  • One-Scene Wonder: King Moody as Spaceship Captain.
  • So Bad, It's Good: This film is a really good B-movie example of the trope.
  • Special Effects Failure: The gargon. Just... the gargon.
    • The live lobster near the beginning probably blew the budget. Later gargons are played by what looks like a black-painted vaguely lobster-shaped cardboard cutout. (They probably intended to do some process work to replace the silhouette with an actual lobster image, but didn't have the budget.)
    • On the other hand, when you consider the next-to-nothing budget the film had, you have to be impressed that the movie's non-special effects work. For example, the entire movie was shot wild track: every single sound was dubbed in later — and unlike certain other B-movies, you can't really tell.
