- Some believe that "The Boogens" is an actual term once used by miners to describe the fear some would experience while spending too much time in deep mines. In fact, it was a word fabricated by screenwriter David O'Malley, using the word "boogeyman" as it's root.
In his Twilight Zone Magazine review, author Stephen King called The Boogens... "A wildly energetic monster movie!"
Rebecca Balding met her future husband James L. Conway while acting in this movie.
