Producer Roberto Barigia stated that the film was made "out of the need to make a film starring Fenech, who at that time was a box-office star. Alas, we made it at the wrong time, as when we decided to try our hand at the genre Fenech's moment had already passed and her name was not so much of an asset as before."
La Pretora found director Lucio Fulci working with an irregular group of collaborators with only assistant director Roberto Giandalia who would go on to work as Fulci for nearly all of Fulci's films concluding with Murder Rock and editor Orenalla Micheli, the rest of the crew are not his regular collaborators.
