directed by Robert Clark

After exposure to radiation, an atomic research scientist finds himself changing into a murderous, lizard-like creature every time he is exposed to sunlight. Written by Ray Hamel   
One of my all time guilty pleasures! Why, because it has music that later become stock music forNIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) directed by George Romero, It is the "We're coming to get you Barera!" music, and it is throughoutthe movie, 9 years before NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD!

I really like this movie, ironically and unironically.

I like this one too and I even enjoyed the goofy re-released with a new audio track featuring a then not so well known comedian Jay Leno.

Love this one too and it is one I have yet to revisit in my recent binge on all things B&W from horror and sci-fi. Thanks for the inspiration, paura! This is a perfect double feature with one I watched recently, Monster on the Campus which I f ucking loved!!!

Fun little film. I have it on VHS from the Elvira collection. It's been some time since I viewed it. I love when he kills the rat!
