* AccidentalMurder: Gil accidentally hits a cop with his car while fleeing. Although Lt. Peterson calls an ambulance, later dialogue states that Gil has killed two people. Since the only other person we've seen him kill onscreen up to then is George, it's a safe bet the officer didn't make it.
** This is confirmed in Tom Weaver's book.

** This is in direct contrast to the original script, where Gil tries to use Suzy (the little girl) as a HumanShield while being chased by the cops! (In the film, he ensures she gets to safety before making his run from the law.)

A 1959 horror film written and directed by Robert Clarke, who also starred as the title character. Originally titled ''Sauros'', the story was envisioned as taking place in Guatemala where an expedition seeking uranium deposits encounters a man turned into a monster, it was rewritten to take place in the United States instead due to budget problems, and the monster was also made the main character.
