Monster on the Campus (Monster in the Night[1] and Stranger on the Campus) is a 1958 American science fiction/horror film, released by Universal-International. It was directed by Jack Arnold, from a script by David Duncan.


The film was the last of Universal's science fiction monster films released before Island of Terror (1966).



Professor Donald Blake (Arthur Franz) acquires a newly discovered coelacanth. He begins to examine the find and is exposed to its irradiated blood. This turns him into a murderous Neanderthal monster that terrorizes the campus.


Production took place between April and May 1958.
