I Was a Teenage Thanksgiving Turkey! week continues at Trailers from Hell, today with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing monster movie-meets-sagebrush saga "Teenage Monster," the sole directorial effort of cinematographer Jacques Marquette.

The sole directorial effort of cinematographer Jacques Marquette (A Bucket of Blood, Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, Burnt Offerings) came about when the intended director backed out, reducing the 8 day schedule by one, and DP Marquette took over. It's an odd but entirely conventional amalgam of monster movie and sagebrush saga. Shot for $57,000 under its eventual tv release title Meteor Monster, it's one of the more desperate entries in the 50s teenage monster cycle. 50 year-old Gil Perkins plays the title role.
