- This was shot under the title "Meteor Monster" but the title was changed to "Teenage Monster" due to the success of monster movies from other distributors which has the word "teenage" in the title. When it was released to U.S. television, the title was changed back to "Meteor Monster" for the 16mm television syndication prints.
Cinematographer Jacques R. Marquette and his Marquette Productions created this film because they needed a very inexpensive feature to fill out the bottom of a double feature package with their previously produced The Brain from Planet Arous (1957). Marquette kept the production costs even lower by directing this himself, his only directing credit.
The day before principle photography, the original director bowed out claiming that he was offered a 14 week project at a major studio. Producer/director of photography Jacques R. Marquette kept the costs low by stepping in and directing it himself and assigning another to handle photography.
