Director Yoshihiro Nishimura began working on the script to Helldriver in 2009. Nishimura took influence from George A. Romero's film Night of the Living Dead which dealt with current events.

On May 15, 2010 Helldriver began filming in an abandoned warehouse in Choshi, Japan.Other scenes involving hordes of zombies were filmed outside Mt.Fuji.
