Re-released in Great Britain under the title of "E.T.N.: The Extraterrestrial Nasty" during the Video Nasty era. The VHS cover itself was actually a doctored E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) poster made to look like a gory rip-off. See more »
During the climax, the day-for-night footage is tinted very unevenly, making the sequence appear to change from day to night and back again between shots. This is most noticeable when the men with rifles are shown; they appear to be waiting in broad daylight, although the scene takes place after midnight. See more »
Look, I'm telling you this for your own good.
Well, I'm fed up taking orders, lover boy. You go take your advice and peddle it somewhere else.
Now listen Rex...

Night Fright Huh? Yeah That was Me after Seeing this One!
Okay it is terribly, and I mean terribly, easy to pick apart this film. C'mmon what do you expect with the title, synopsis, and actors in leads such as Carol Gilley, Ralph Baker Jr., Dorothy Davis, Bill Thurman, and, my personal favourite, Roger Ready. Yes, B star John Agar is here as a sheriff out to rid the Texan landscape of a robot-like ape from a NASA experiment gone awry. The movie has dreadful performances, dreadful scenery, dreadful special effects, and dreadful lighting. I really cannot find much good to say about it other than as bad films go you could do a lot worse as far as finding something dreadful to sit through. It is bearably short and has many moments of unintended humor. Missed cues, lighting faux pas, off-screen terror, an unbelievably inane score, and of course John Agar trying his level best to be the core of the film with an earnest performance amidst this muck. The beginning is the hardest part to sit through as it seems like it takes forever for these two teens to get their comeuppance for traveling in the woods down the Texas back roads where great ape soon will reek his vengeance in his own terrible way...Yeah right! Night Fright! Bah!
