This film had the least number of Hammer connections in an Amicus production.

Financed by Amicus pictures in 1970 as “Romeo and Juliet ’71” in an attempt to capture the ever-growing grindhouse/exploitation market. The final product proved to be too nihilistic for Amicus executives, and they shelved the film for two years until it was picked up for distribution by 20th Century Fox.
