Producer Roy Reid of Headliner Productions was willing to fund the project, though Wood had to revise his script in early The result was The Sinister Urgewhich was filmed primarily in July Both films were about sexually motivated psychopaths, and Reid and Wood likely aimed to capitalize on the similarity of their concepts. Rob Craig suggests that the film can be seen as an early entry in a new subgenre of exploitation filmsthe so-called "roughies".
