    The film was directed by Jim Wynorski who had gained a reputation for making a number of sequels, such as Deathstalker 2. "People would just come to me and ask," said Wynorski. "And I always said "yes". I wanted the money and the experience. There were only a couple of films that I turned down. I always wanted to make a sequel only if the previous film was bad. There wasn't much point to a sequel if the previous release was really great. I wanted to make a sequel that was better than the first one."

    Wynorski later said "I hate that film... It was tough to make. I was handed a script and I didn't think it was very good." The only part of the film he liked was a sequence where a girl was meant to be sucked into a Pac Man machine. This was too expensive to film so Wynorski came up with the idea, based on a dream, where he recreated a scene from It's a Wonderful Life (1946). He could do this because that film was in the public domain. "For me that's the one stand out aspect of that film, 'cause it's so weird," he said.

    The film featured Brigitte Nielsen in a small role. Wynorski met her at a party and they played pool together. Wynorski challenged her to a wager - if he won she would do a day for him for scale on his next picture; if she won he would "put on a maid's outfit and clean your house. And she was up for that. We had a good game, it was close but I won." So Nielsen did a day on the film. Wynorski said she did "an ok job... she wasn't difficult to work with. She was working for pretty big bucks at the time and she was working for scale and she didn't really come in super prepared and we had to go over her lines but in the end she did a great job."
