A defecting Russian scientist is transformed by an atomic test into a hulking monster (Tor Johnson, of course). Not much else except some people are killed, boys get lost, and a rabbit sniffs Tor's corpse. This film was used for Mystery Science Theater 3000.Written by

Shot without sound. To avoid having to sync a lot of sound in post-production, the actors turned away from the camera when speaking, and cupped their hands over their mouths when shouting. See more »
A man and woman in a VW Bug pull over to the side of the road. The man turns the car off, including the headlights, and goes around to the back to check the engine. Later, when Patrolman Joe Young pulls up in front of the VW, the headlights are back on. See more »
Always on the prowl. Looking for something or somebody to kill. Quench the killer's thirst.

Some prints contain a pre-title sequence which shows a large man, dressed like Tor Johnson in the film, attacking a topless woman inside a house. The technical quality of this footage is far superior to the rest of the movie which seems to indicate that it was not part of the original production. The topless nudity would not have been permitted on U.S. screens at the time this movie was originally shot. See more »
I had no idea when I started watching this movie what it was about but I was very well surprised by the extremely low quality of the movie.
It consists of no on screen dialog, a speaker-voice reads an pretensious load of crap as Tor Johnson staggers around as a confused Russian scientist harmed by a nuclear-test. Even if someone for some bizarre reason would WANT to make such an insane movie they would not have been able to come up with something like this.
Only a truly deranged mind could make such a movie. A genius in its own world of badness, competing with brilliant filmmakers like Ed Wood and others but Coleman Francis outnumbers them all!!
