- This project was proposed because of the success of the "Shock Theatre" package of Universal horror films released to television. The other contributing factors were the recent successes of the British made _Curse of Frankenstein" (1957)_ and the low budget American International release I Was a Teenage Frankenstein (1957). This low budget film would have the advantage of being shot in Cinemascope.
- This film was originally going to be entitled "Frankenstein 1960" but it didn't sound futuristic enough. It was also thought to be too far fetched that an independent researcher could obtain his own atomic reactor in 1960.
