Lobster Man from Mars is a 1955 American science fiction film directed by Nathan Juran and starring Richard Denning, Jean Peters, and Raymond Burr. The film is about a lobster-like alien who crash-lands on Earth and begins to terrorize the local population. The film begins with a group of scientists on a research expedition in the Arctic. They discover a strange object buried in the ice and bring it back to their base. When they thaw it out, they find that it is a lobster-like alien. The alien escapes and begins to terrorize the scientists. The scientists call in the military, but the lobster alien is too powerful for them. It kills several soldiers and escapes. The military then calls in a scientist named Dr. Paul Kettering (Richard Denning) to help them capture the alien. Kettering develops a serum that will weaken the alien, and the military uses it to capture the creature. The alien is taken to a secret government facility, where it is studied. The scientists learn that the alien is from Mars and that it came to Earth in search of a new home. The alien is eventually killed, and the scientists are able to learn more about its race. Lobster Man from Mars is a classic science fiction film that is full of action and suspense. The film is well-made and features some impressive special effects. The film is also notable for its social commentary, as it explores the themes of prejudice and fear of the unknown.
