Production[edit]

Roger Corman was inspired to make the film after being impressed by a presentation from special effects experts Jack Rabin and Irving Block. He later felt the budget was inadequate to execute what they wanted and said the film taught him an important lesson not to make a big scale movie on a low budget.[1]

On the first day of filming, the actress Corman had cast in the lead held out for more money, so he fired her and promoted second lead Abby Dalton instead.[1]

Criticism[edit]

The film currently holds a 2.5/10 user rating on IMDb.
