Trivia Director Mario Bava used the mirror-based Schufftan Process to combine live action with miniatures and thereby avoiding the costly matte/optical printing techniques. See more »
Goofs When Sanya tosses the "Ray rifle" to Mark on board the Galliot near the end she tosses it to him backwards, he catches and holds it on his possessed bother's body backwards despite it being clearly shown earlier firing from the opposite end he was pointing at Toby. A moment later he shoots Toby's body and the ray rifle is pointed correctly. See more »

Quotes Capt. Mark Markary: One entire crew lost; two of our own crew gone. Bert dead, Eldon disappeared. And this unknown enemy keeps getting closer!
Dr. Karan: The enemy is also becoming visible.
Capt. Mark Markary: What do you mean by that?
Dr. Karan: Well, you saw something. Something not quite identifiable out of the corner of your eye.
Capt. Mark Markary: Ah, yes. As if it were composed of little globes of light, something fleeting, nothing definite. And the minute I looked at the things directly, they were gone.
