Check out the scene where some off screen technician tosses flaming debris at our couple and hits Jeff Morrow. He looks up looking pretty pissed off.

Apparently he was pissed off about the whole movie. See his comments in the "personal quotes" section of his IMDB entry.

It's in his bio, here on the IMDB. But I'll quote it, because it's hilarious:

"We shot the film before we ever got a look at this monster that was supposed to be so terrifying. The producers promised us that the special effects would be first class. The director - Fred F. Sears - just told us, "All right, now you see the bird up there, and you're scared to death! Use your imagination." But the first time we actually got to see it was the night of the premiere. The audience couldn't stop laughing. We were up there on screen looking like idiots, treating this silly buzzard like it was the scariest thing in the world. We felt cheated, that's for sure, but they told us afterward that they just ran out of money. They couldn't afford anything but this stupid puppet. But it was just terrible. I was never so embarrassed in my whole life."

Lol. That's just one more tasty ingredient in this delicious film sauce that is the Giant Claw.

I love this film... and the fact that they (the actors) did take it so seriously, is a big reason why it's so good.

-it doesn't deserve the rating it has.

Great piece of trivia, thanks.
That stupid puppet as he calls it appears to me quite a threat in its own right, until its flaw is discovered. At least, the audience back then weren't entirely bored with the movie's somehow wooden acting and overly alarming tone ha ha.
