Director Joe D'Amato made the movie very quickly, in an effort to cash in on the popularity of Conan il distruttore (1984). D'Amato made the first Ator movie in response to the success of Conan il barbaro (1982).
According to director Joe D'Amato, the film was shot in two weeks, without a script. Miles O'Keeffe was contracted to star in a certain number of films for D'Amato, leaving very little time to write a script.
This film was parodied in the first episode of season 3 of Mystery Science Theater 3000 where it was renamed "Cave Dwellers".
