George Ellis, the star of this movie, is fondly remembered as the host of Big Movie Shocker, a Friday night late show in Atlanta during the 1960s, performing under the name Bestoink Dooley (the same as the character in this film). George styled himself to look somewhat like a hobo, and his character spoke in a wonderfully droll manner, pretending he was bored and he didn't know why his audience bothered watching the "old movies" he had to present.

I remember seeing this film in 1965, I was a young girl. I had nightmares for months from this film. I think this was the first horror film I ever saw. I grew up in GA near stone mountain. I have told my children of this movie for years. I would love to see it again. Funny thing I have turned into quite a horror movie watcher. Stephen King is my favorite author. Maybe this movie had a bigger impact than I thought.
