Cinematographer Jacques R. Marquette and his Marquette Productions made this film because they needed a very inexpensive feature to fill out the bottom of a double-feature package with their previously produced The Brain from Planet Arous (1957). Marquette kept production costs as low as possible by shooting the picture himself and hiring an inexpensive director. However, the day before principal photography was to begin, the director quit the production, claiming that he had been offered a 14-week contract by a major studio. Marquette had no time--or money--to hire another director, so he took over the job himself, making this his only film as director, and gave the job of cinematographer to a new cameraman whose first job this was.

When Kathy is on the bed her head changes position between shots; in the wider shot she is looking away from the window, in the close up towards it. Simultaneously, in the wide shot the 'monster' is to the left hand side of the window but in the close up that follows, he has jumped to the right. See more »
A frightening bore, that is. Jack Pierce's make-up and above-mediocre acting can't save this poorly directed, implausible story. Yet another cliche, mumbling child-minded monster is on the loose, aided by his normal mother. The worst of this movie is the misleading title: while cashing in on the teenage monster fad (we all know "teenage monster" is a redundancy) the monster here looks like an old hermit or prehistoric caveman. And the big plot question never gets resolved - will mom marry her son's murderer? The best of this movie (at least it's on the DVD) is the original movie trailer shown at the end - classically and hilariously repaints the film you just saw into a riveting drama.
