Director Michael A. Hoey and producer Jack Broder had major disagreements during shooting. Broder changed the title from "Night Crawlers" - the title of the book upon which the script was based - to its current title, which Hoey detested. Broder also had story ideas Hoey disagreed with, and when the "tree stump monsters" arrived, Hoey thought they were ridiculous and refused to shoot them. Broder called in Arthur C. Pierce, who was working on another movie Broder was producing, and had him shoot additional scenes to add the story elements Broder wanted. He also had Jon Hall, who had created the "tree stump monsters", shoot the scenes with them that Hoey refused to do. See more »

When I was a little kid this film gave me the creeps, but now its just a cure for insomnia. The only thing that makes this film watchable is Mamie Van Doren in a blouse that looks like its about two or three sizes too small and shows the thing (or should I say things) that made her one of the icons of B-movies. This film will always hold a special place in the hearts of fans of Ms. Van Doren.
