Trivia

  • Because the budget was so low, Ray Harryhausen removed two arms from the octopus to save money on the effects. He made the creature appear as if two arms were always in the water, making it appear that it had eight arms.
  • This is the film that brought together producer Charles H. Schneer and special effects legend Ray Harryhausen. Their professional relationship would last until Clash of the Titans (1981), the final feature for both men.

    Much of the filming was done at the San Francisco Naval Shipyard, including scenes aboard a submarine, and several naval personnel were given supporting roles, including Lt. Chuck Griffiths as the sub's second in command. Columbia distributed as well as produced, making available their "Creature with the Atom Brain" as a second feature for double bill bookings.
