- Dr. Emery Forrest: But to take a stranger, a man injured in an accident, and give him a full inoculation of that serum. Dr. Morgan Chambers: Yes, I'd almost forgotten about him. So much could fail if he should remember and tell someone what he knows about us. There's nothing else left but to-... Dr. Emery Forrest: You're not going to kill him! Dr. Morgan Chambers: You think he still wants to live after what he's become? It would be an act of charity.
Sheriff Jack Haines: Doctors try to save people. The Law doesn't always have a choice.
- When first released, this movie played as the bottom half of a double bill with Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956).
The werewolf in this film was the screen's first science-fictional, non-supernatural lycanthrope. While possessed of incredible strength and ferocity, he could be killed by ordinary bullets and didn't require a full moon to cause transformation.
Probably to save time and/or money, shots of the werewolf fleeing the posse near the climax, were shot "day-for-night" while the posse shots were filmed during real nighttime.
