Dr. Phillip's dog is hit by a strong dose of Strontium-90. Later, strontium 90 is taken from Phillips' reactor to dose the cattle. In 1966, the nuclear reactors capable of producing Strontium-90 were far larger than the one in Phillips' lab and needed giant control boards, as well as huge amounts of water for cooling, none of which were in evidence.

The UK cinema version was cut by a few seconds by the BBFC to remove a brief shot of blood-spurts after a hand is chopped off with an axe. The early UK and French DVDs retain this version though the German CCI DVD issue has the scene intact. The 2014 UK Odeon DVD release is fully uncut. See more »
I read another review of this film here that wonders if the special effects came from Doctor Who. Well, like that program's big enemy, the Daleks, the monsters in this exciting, scary, silly, fantastic film are SO EASY to imitate. Just as kids would run around playgrounds, arms outstretched, yelling "exterminate!" I remember being at lunch in elementary school sucking our straws at the bottom of our milks, imitating the sound of the evil bone-sucking creatures, and screaming in "agony" as our bones dissolved. Every Friday night, when a show called "Friday Fright Night" aired, in the 80s, this was the one movie we always PRAYED would be on...Brilliant
