This film was originally shot in the summer of 1977. However, the original version was deemed so bad that it was considered unreleasable. So director Denny Harris got the screenwriters Jim Wheat and Ken Wheat to radically revise the script. The actors and actresses who played the college students in the picture were brought back for reshoots in 1978. Yvonne De Carlo, Barbara Steele, Cameron Mitchell, and Avery Schreiber were all also cast for the reshoots. Only 15% of the footage from the original version was retained in the final finished film.
Rebecca Balding drove her own car in the film.
