The role of Angela was originally given to Bonita Jade, but she pulled out at the last minute.
The original title was "The Incredibly Strange Creature: Or Why I Stopped Living and Became a Mixed-up Zombie." Columbia Pictures threatened to sue writer/director/star Ray Dennis Steckler, accusing the title of being too similar to their upcoming Stanley Kubrick film, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). Steckler, amazed that Columbia would feel so threatened by a $38,000 film, phoned the studio to straighten things out. He made no progress until he demanded that Kubrick get on the line. When Kubrick picked up, Steckler suggested the new title, Kubrick accepted, and the matter was dropped.
Readers of critic Roger Ebert's "Movie Answer Man" column informally voted this movie to have the funniest title of all time.
When this movie was released, employees of the theaters would dress as monsters and run through the theaters.
