The Boy from Out of This World, a new documentary by director Elle Schneider has just begun production in Los Angeles. The film explores the making of Tom Graeff’s 1959 monster flick Teenagers From Outer Space, as well as the history and evolutions of the B movie as a medium rebelling against the studio system.
Boy features interviews with Troma president Lloyd Kaufman, MST3K’s Michael J. Nelson, Bryan Pearson (“Thor” in Teenagers, as Bryan Grant), other members of the film’s cast, B movie directors, and professors from the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

The film’s website, will document the research and discoveries made about Teenagers while the doc is filming, and make that information available publicly to TFOS lovers and B movie enthusiasts.

The film should premiere at festivals in early 2007.

Keep watching the skies!

Haven’t you contacted Graeff himself?

Unfortunately Mr. Graeff committed suicide in 1970. He was a very ambitious man, and the pressure of not making it in Hollywood eventually caused him to end his own life.
