The sole directorial effort of cinematographer Jacques Marquette (A Bucket of Blood, Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, Burnt Offerings) came about when the intended director backed out, reducing the 8 day schedule by one, and DP Marquette took over. It's an odd but entirely conventional amalgam of monster movie and sagebrush saga. Shot for $57,000 as The Monster on the Hill and sold to tv as Meteor Monster, it's one of the more desperate entries in the 50s teenage monster cycle. 50 year-old Gil Perkins plays the title role.

I had the fortune of seeing Poison Ivy in the theatre (albeit a second-run dollar theatre) during its original release. I think I saw a trailer for it at a showing of Bill Duke's Deep Cover, and I think Poison Ivy only played for a week first-run...
