- Captain: When we return to our planet, the high court may well sentence you to *torture* and death for your treason.
Captain: We are the supreme race. We have the supreme weapons.
[Upon discovering the skeleton in Simpson's office] Hilda: I'm not going to keep a job where this sort of thing goes on.
Thor: I will find you. I will find you. I will find you. I will find you. Ahhhhhhggg.
Captain: Morrow! Go below and bring up the young gargon specimen. Now the decision depends on its reactions. Derek: Wait, Captain. I have found evidence of intelligent beings on this planet! Thor: Of what concern of foreign beings? Derek: Of none to you, Thor! Just as you were so unconcerned when you destroyed this small creature, so bravely! Thor: It was no more than an insect. Derek: But it had life. And that life you had to take to satisfy your endless hunger for killing.
- The film's producers could not afford to construct a giant lobster, so only its shadow is seen - cast, no doubt, by a normal-sized lobster.
Although Warner Bros. distributed this ultra-low-budget sci-fi film, it was definitely not a Warner Bros. production. The studio needed a genre film to play as the second feature with the Godzilla sequel it was releasing under the title Gojira no gyakushű (1955) and bought this from producer Tom Graeff.
Unable to afford time on a soundstage to film Betty Morgan's home, director Tom Graeff posed as a UCLA student directing a student project, and so obtained permission from an elderly woman to film for free in her home.
The trim on the aliens' costumes is made from masking tape, and their space boots are men's dress shoes covered by socks.
One skeleton was used for every dead body in the film. A hook/tag on the head and identification markings in permanent marker on the hip can clearly be seen on the skeleton in almost every scene. The skeleton also has curiously bolted limbs.
