Lobster Man From Mars (1989)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
young film student tries to sell his weird movie to a desparate film producer who is in need of a tax write-off. The producer screens the film "Lobster Man From Mars". What follows is one of the most bizarre and funny film within-a-film sendups: Mars suffers from an air leakage, and send the dreaded Lobster Man to Earth to steal its air. The plot is foiled by a mad scientist, a girl, and an army colonel. The producer buys the movie, but it makes a huge profit and the producer is sent to jail, with the film student taking his place as the studio hot shot

- The biggest lobster tale ever.
- Skeletons pave its way...
- He nipped all over the universe...
- He's nasty, snappy... and well past his sell-by date.
- Professor Plocostomos: If you were a lobster man, would you go into a haunted house surrounded by hot springs?
Professor Plocostomos: Do you think you can kill an alien space bat with bullets?
Tommy Sledge: I had a hunch - not an idea, not even a feeling, more like a rabbit punch to the base of the brain.
The Dreaded Lobster Man: Is this the end of Mombo?
Professor Plocostomos: Their purpose is clear - maybe not to you, but to me.
- Orson Welles came up with the title for this movie. He had originally agreed to play the part of the producer, but died before production began.
On the last day of shooting, director Stanley Sheff and producer Steven S. Greene bought the entire cast and crew an expensive lobster dinner.
In his autobiography, Tony Curtis says that he worked on the movie because they paid him $100,000, and he needed to make child support payments. He also mentions that during the production, he never saw the scenes of the movie that his character was reacting to.
Although shot using 35mm film, this was the first feature length movie to have its picture and sound post production completed entirely by means of video technology. No traditional film post production methods were used. Only the final release print used 35mm film.
