Movie Quote(s):
  • Mary Royce: Every bone in his body must be broken. But I'm not sure that's what killed him.
  • Lt. James Calder: Mars is almost as big as Texas, maybe it has monsters.
  • Col. Van Heusen: There's only one kind of a monster that uses bullets.
  • Maj. John Purdue: It's got to kill us or starve and we've got to kill it or die.
  • Spokesman at Press Conference: Another name for "Mars" is "Death".
Movie Trivia:
  • The final battle between the monster and crew is being shown at the drive-in during the Bryan Adamsí video "Summer of '69".
  • On its initial release, the standard co-feature with this film was Curse of the Faceless Man (1958).
  • The mask of the monster suit was altered considerably. When Ray Corrigan was fitted for the monster suit, the mask was initially too tight. Paul Blaisdell, the maker of the monster suit, had to remove and rebuild the monster's lower jaw so the mask would fit better. Unfortunately, Corrigan's chin stuck out through the opening made in the mask. Blaisdell made up Corrigan's chin to look like the monster's tongue. The mask's original eyes (large and catlike, a Blaisdell trademark) were also removed so that we see Corrigan's own eyes behind the mask.
