Movie Trivia:
  • There was an urban legend that Nikkatsu's international English prints originally had a racist line, "The monsters are attacking Tokyo. Fortunately they are attacking the Negro section of town." (and that the line was changed). This was untrue.
  • This is the only monster movie (kaijū eiga) released by Nikkatsu. Unfortunately, after this film was released, the company nearly went out of business.
