Trivia

During the American Occupation, Eiji Tsuburaya was blacklisted from the studios for what was regarded as his work on propaganda films during the war. He got around this by starting an independent company to supply "special techniques" (special effects) to the studios. His company was contracted by Daiei to do the special techniques for this film. He would later close his company when he was allowed to be hired by Toho. This film is regarded as a prime example of his pre-"Gojira" (1954) (Godzilla) accomplishments in the science fiction/horror genre. See more »
