A young man is transformed into a hideous "moon beast" due to a meteor fragment lodged in his body.
Shot in September 1972, then sat on the shelf for 4 years, looking for a distributor. In the end, it went straight to television.
This is a great stew, what's in it?
Johnny Longbow: Lots of things. Chicken. Corn. Green peppers. Chili.
Johnny Longbow: Onions... well, it's an old recipe around here.
Midway through the movie, when Paul is suffering from the Moon Beast illness, the camera zooms in on an obvious photo of the full moon.
The movie has no ending credits at all, not even the traditional 'the end' title card. The final scene just fades to black.
For its appearance on Mystery Science Theater 3000 in 1999 some scenes were edited from Track of the Moon Beast. Most notably a scene of Johnny Longbow and his students examining a mysterious "flaw" in one of Kathy's photographs from the museum is cut.
