Night Fright (1967)

Starring John Agar, Carol Gilley, Ralph Baker, Jr., Dorothy Davis, Bill Thurman
Directed by James A. Sullivan
(actor & director credits courtesy

After a top-secret rocket crashes inside a rural county, the local sheriff discovers a murdering unnatural creature is on the loose.

A low-budget independent production, featuring Agar, playing the sheriff, as the only real "name" actor in the cast, this film doesn't have much to offer besides its creature, which looks to be a fairly unique makeup, but one we never really get a good look at due to too poorly lit night scenes.  The cast isn't bad, but the plot line, focusing too much attention on some rebellious teenagers, isn't anything we haven't seen before.
