Arkoff). It was produced by Alex Gordon, directed by Edward L. Cahn, and stars Chester Morris, Marla English, and Tom Conway. The monster costume was created by master make-up artist Paul Blaisdell and is considered one of his best.

He uses the physical manifestation of the prehistoric creature to commit murders.
