This is the second collaboration between Writer/Director Rowdy Herrington and Actor James Spader. Their first was the cult thriller, "Jack's Back" in 1988.
James Spader met his current wife on this film who happend to be his co-star, Leslie Stefanson.
The fictional town of Vadalia in the film is actually named Hope located in British Columbia, Canada where the first "Rambo" film "First Blood" was filmed in 1982, and this film was filmed and released twenty years later.
The fictional town of Vadalia is supposed to be located in Nevada, which would make sense for Parker to run away and hide in since it was hours away from Los Angeles.
