Contaminated grain breeds overgrown, killer rats in this Golden Harvest production. Dachshunds were dressed up as rats for the special effects.
Screenwriter Charles H. Eglee met his wife Ninkey Dalton, who worked on this film as a production designer, during the making of this film.
When a man locks himself in the train car to get away from the rats, there is a faint dog barking sound. Dachshunds were used to play the rats and dressed in rat suits.
