A publicity stunt went somewhat wrong in New York City. The Rialto Theater in Times Square featured a sidewalk promotion for the film--one of the prop "brain creatures" was displayed in a cage on the sidewalk outside the theater, wired for sound and motion.

Original UK cinema prints were cut by the BBFC to heavily reduce sounds and shots of gore from the climactic destruction of the creatures. The version shown by BBC as part of the Moviedrome season was the same cut cinema print, and this was later issued on UK DVD in 2003 on the 2 Entertain label. See more
