Trivia

Originally the film was released with a running time of 112 minutes but several notable critics denounced the slow pacing so, in 1968, director Arch Oboler cut the movie to 91 minutes. Unfortunately, the edits were made directly to the original camera negative and the footage was discarded. No prints of the 112 minute version are known to exist. See more »

Childhood trauma
4 January 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I have a real soft spot for this awful movie. I had nightmares for weeks after seeing it on its release; I was 6 years old. I remember ripping the 3D glasses off my face in abject terror. I would have run screaming from the theater if I had not been in the company of a large group of friends. Years later, I still had a rather vivid memory of the images that had terrified me and I searched high and low for this movie. When I finally found a VHS copy I was astounded at how cheesy and tame the whole thing was, though when I came to the part that had originally traumatized me, I still found it rather unnerving. I can't recommend it to the average viewer, but genre fans (that bad 60's horror genre) and 3D enthusiasts might want to take a look.
