A rare fusion of the Old West, gothic horror and science fiction. Rays from a mysterious meteor kill one man and infect his teenage son with a mutating werewolf-like malady. The "Meteor Monster" goes on a murderous killing binge and terrorizes the countryside as the sheriff and townspeople watch in horror. One of the last films of legendary special effects make-up artist, Jack Pierce, who created the original Boris Karloff make-up in Frankenstein and The Mummy.
Part western, part science fiction, and part horror, Jaques Marquette's METEOR MONSTER is a bizarre product of nuclear age hysterics and drive-in movie cheapness. Its plots finds a teenage boy going on a killing spree after being exposed to a mysterious meteor and transformed into a werewolf-like creature who lusts for blood. An enjoyable and often hilarious B-movie romp, METEOR MONSTER boasts special effects by Jack Pierce, the man who helped create Boris Karloff's makeup for FRANKENSTEIN and THE MUMMY.
