Nightbeast is a 1982 science fiction/horror film directed by cult director Don Dohler. It is a remake/sequel of sorts to Dohler's first film The Alien Factor. The story concerns a small town sheriff who must stop a rampaging alien from killing the residents of Perry Hall. Most of the cast of The Alien Factor reprise their roles in Nightbeast. Nightbeast features opening credit effects by Ernest Farino (who created the opening title effects for The Terminator, The Abyss and Terminator 2) and the creature was created by John Dods who has since provided special effects for Ghostbusters 2, Alien Resurrection, and The X Files. Additional Makeup Effects by Amodio Giordano. Some of the music was also written by J.J. Abrams.
Nightbeast was released on DVD February 24, 2009 along with Blood, Boobs & Beast, a documentary about Don Dohler's life and career.
