Trivia

GGOF:'At one point the sherrif tosses the wrapped plaster cast of the creature's footprint to the reporter. Shortly thereafter when the sherrif and the professor study the cast it is noticeably larger. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Chris Jordan: But... but seriously, have you... have you ever thought about... oh, sometimes when I'm alone I think about things that we don't know about... about the sky and the earth and the air and the wind... or even this leaf.

A Valiant hearse is the first clue there's something wrong.
6 May 2007 | by (Central Midwest, USA) – See all my reviews

When the budget doesn't allow for a Cadillac or Packard or Lincoln or Imperial hearse we are talking cheep cheep. That's bird language for cheap cheap.

What is in the hair of the forty year old teen boy? The guy who looks like a cement head who tries a couple of times to run over John Agar and provides the only scare in the movie by how close he comes. His hair looks like a shoe. A patent leather shoe. He is a shoe head.

The nurse woman needs immediate emergency hair washing. She has lacquer in her blond locks that would ignite if the production company had been able to afford lights.

The monster? The music was scarier. I would try to run from the music. The monster probably had better hair than the rest of the cast. Put some lipstick on that monster and you've got Divine's older sister.

The camera work and editing and plot provided a buffer to prepare the audience for the bad music throughout.

Hello Mr. Agar? We're thinking of doing a sequel to Night Fright and... Mr. Agar? Agar? Tom Willett
