Horror comedy that combines elements of black comedy, political satire and horror, was filmed in Washington D.C. and New York, directed by Milton Moses Ginsberg, who had previously worked as a director and writer on several low-budget films. The film was made on a relatively low budget and suffered from production problems, such as delays and problems with scenes requiring special effects. Stockwell's performance was critically acclaimed and his portrayal of the werewolf character is compelling and entertaining.
