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 »

I would think the title alone would be enough to scare off anyone looking for a good science fiction show. After watching the movie, I was really impressed. I mean I was expecting something stupid, However, you can't judge a book by it's cover. The Navy vs. the Night Monsters was and is a good low budget film. The scenery was above average (making you feel you were really there).The acting was decent and the story was well written. But the title is very misleading and I can understand why it was probably overlooked by most people. Oh well, I gave it a chance and it paid off. If you should come across this movie somewhere, why not check it out. If your a nostalgic sci-fi buff like me, you will enjoy it.
