The film is in the public domain, which means one can easily find it either online or as part of almost any movie box set containing public domain movies, though the versions found through said methods are of questionable quality. It was released on Blu-Ray and DVD by Kino (their release contains both a [[DigitalDestruction heavily DNR-ladened version]] of the movie and an uncleaned version) and VCI Entertainment (their release has a version which falls in between).

Creator/JamesRolfe highlighted the movie on Monster Madness 2009, and eventually did a three-part commentary on it with Mike Mattei.
