Gog was shot on two sets at Hal Roach Studios; exteriors were filmed at the George Air Force Base (former AFB near Victorville, California.) The actual filming took place in only 15 days.
The movie was shot in widescreen (WS), color, and 3-D.
Gog is the third episode in Ivan Tors' Office of Scientific Investigation (OSI) trilogy, following both The Magnetic Monster and Riders to the Stars.
Scientists working on induced hibernation for space travel are killed, apparently by machines acting independently. Security agent Sheppard arrives at the secret underground space research base to investigate possible sabotage. He finds that the whole base is coordinated by supercomputer NOVAC and its robots Gog and Magog; and a strange aircraft is detected high overhead.
