Was the very last production filmed on the famous "Mayberry" backlot set just before it was razed in 1976. This film ended an era that lasted 49 years for the famous "RKO 40 Acres" and later, "Desilu Culver" backlot.

Shot in thirty days.

Andrew Stevens, who plays Paul, the friend of Jan Michael-Vincent's character, also starred in "Massacre at Central High" the same year, a movie with a similar plot theme as "Vigilante Force" - the bad guys are taken out by the good guys, but then the new good guys get power-mad and have to be taken out themselves.
