  • Who says Vampires are no laughing matter?
Movie Quote(s):
  • Count Von Krolock: A year ago exactly on this same night we were assembled here in this very room: I your pastor, and you my beloved flock. With hopefulness in my heart I told you then that with Lucifer's aid we might look forward to a more succulent occasion. Cast back your minds. There we were, gathered together, gloomy and despondent, around a single meager woodcutter.
  • Shagal, the Inn-Keeper: [a young woman tries to fend off Shagail, a Jewish Vampire, with a cross] Oy vey, have you got the wrong vampire.
  • [last lines] Narrator: That night, fleeing from Transylvania, Professor Abronsius never guessed he was carrying away with him the very evil he had wished to destroy. Thanks to him, this evil would at last be able to spread across the world.
  • Alfred, Abronsius' Assistant: Shouldn't we build a barricade? Professor Abronsius: No, that would be bad tactics.
  • Count Von Krolock: I am a night bird. I am not much good in the daytime.
Movie Trivia:
  • Producer Martin Ransohoff discovered Sharon Tate on the set of "The Beverly Hillbillies" (1962), and insisted that director Roman Polanski use her instead of Jill St. John as Polanski had planned.
  • Sharon Tate replaced 'Jill St John', who withdrew shortly before shooting.
  • Amongst the ancestral portraits in the castle is a depiction of an ugly old woman inspired by a sketch of Leonardo da Vinci and since the 18th century frequently connected with Margarete Maultasch, countess of Tyrol (1318-1369).
  • The original format of the film was to be spherical widescreen. However, at the early stages of production the format was changed to wider, anamorphic Panavision. This results in some of the spherical shots having to be reframed and cropped in order to be as wide as Panavision.
  • The film's original release in the United States was so severely re-edited against Polanski's wishes that he disowned it entirely.
