The first day's shooting was "day for night". Because the new director of photography was inexperienced in shooting day for night,the entire day's shooting had to be scrapped because the camera negative was so underexposed that an acceptable image could not be printed from it. See more »
When Kathy is on the bed her head changes position between shots; in the wider shot she is looking away from the window, in the close up towards it. Simultaneously, in the wide shot the 'monster' is to the left hand side of the window but in the close up that follows, he has jumped to the right. See more »
Hey - it's a 50's horror movie, what can we expect, kids?
This one is truly original in that it actually combines werewolves, meteors, and the Old West. However, the sci-fi aspect (meteors) is particularly tenuous - the 'meteor' appears to be a lit sparkler held close to the camera in soft focus. And the 'grown-up' Charles is just unbelievable, even if he is a werewolf - it's seven years later, but he looks at least 40. But if you can deal with 50'd Sci-Fi - you'll find this fun. Nice comment on manipulative women as well -actually a fairly coherent, if more than a bit far out - plot.
