A germ warfare lab has had an accident. The first theory is that one of the nasty germs has gotten free and killed several scientists. The big fear is that a more virulent strain, named The Satan Bug because all life can be killed off by it should it escape, may have been stolen. Written by

When Barret first enters the vault, he dials top combination lock. The door has two locks requiring a second combination (held by another person) to open. This is common in high security, i.e. 'No-Lone' zones to prevent one person from accessing the area by themselves. See more »
A reference is made in the movie to Palmdale (north of Los Angeles) and this might be where the exterior views of the 'lab' were filmed. But many of the other scenes remind this commenter of the Palm Springs/Coachella Valley area (east of the LA basin) in the Sixties before the influx of heavy population and housing. The beautiful purple mountains, the wide open peaceful vistas, the empty roads stretching off into the distance.
It's just a guess. Parts of Arizona could also have been involved. But that trailer park where the bad guy lives looks very much like one that's located near the base of the mountain on the back road out of Palm Desert (Hwy 111?).
Fun movie to watch for the scenery alone.
Too bad Ann Francis is once again only window dressing. She's capable, as many beautiful actresses are, of more. At least she gets to give one of the villains some grief.
