Trenchard-Smith and producer Andreas Haas had previously made The Paradise Virus together, which had been successful and they reunited for this follow-up. The film was shot in 14 days on Grand Turk Island. Trenchard-Smith says Gabrielle Anwar rewrote much of her dialogue, which he thought improved the script.[1]

The director later said the film was "not perfect":

A few things make me wince a little. Critics will probably mock it. It's my venture into Douglas Sirk emotional melodrama territory with a Caribbean flavor on a shoestring budget, but aided by a savvy music score from David Reynolds, his fourth for me. The music really helps a lot. But I am proud of the film; it delivers just what a particular audience wants. That's my job, genre by genre.[1]
