Monster A-Go Go (1965)

Starring Phil Morton, June Travis, George Perry, Lois Brooks, Rork Stevens
Directed by Bill Rebane
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

After a space capsule returns to Earth, but the pilot cannot be found, a series of grisly murders occur, leading the authorities to believe the astronaut has become a radioactive monster.

This is a pretty low-rent production with a music score consisting of only some jangly piano notes, sound recording issues, and an abrupt nonsensical ending which makes it seem as if the filmmakers ran out of money.  The script also meanders quite a bit, not picking one main character to hunt the monster, but shifting from one scientist to another to another.  It's not completely terrible, but there were a number of scenes that were a bit of a chore to sit through, and despite being a science fiction movie, there are no special effects.
