Teen-Age Strangler is a 1964 crime drama film directed by Ben Parker. It was made in Huntington, West Virginia.[1] It exploits the popular concern with Juvenile delinquency of the American Cold War period. It was re-released in black & white in 1990, resulting in local screenings, newspaper writeups, and cast reunions.[2] It was featured on a Season 5 episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K).[3] Actor John Humphreys, who played the role of "Mikey" appeared at the MST3K first Conventio-Con in September, 1994.[4]
