The Night God Screamed is a 1971 American psychological horror film, independently made on a low budget by Lasky/Carlin Productions (producers Ed Carlin and Gil Lasky, with Lasky writing the screenplay). Due to the sensitivities connected with displaying such a provocative title, theater owners in small town and rural communities were offered the option of using the short alternative appellation, Scream. Copyrighted in 1971 and intermittently distributed between 1971 and 1974 by exploitation producer Jerry Gross' soon-to-be-bankrupt Cinemation Industries, the sparsely exhibited feature was directed by Lee Madden and gave top billing to Academy Award nominee (Best Actress for 1949's Pinky) Jeanne Crain, whose previous two film appearances were in 1962 and 1967, with her one remaining film credit, a year after filming The Night God Screamed, being a fifth-billed supporting role in MGM's big-budget airplane drama Skyjacked.
