Movie Quote(s):
  • Charles Hillyer: It's Dominick! I saw him! Alice Hillyer: You mean you imagained him? Charles Hillyer: No, I mean I saw him. Just last night before you came back from the theater... And again... just now!
  • Paul Henderson: I'm Paul Henderson. Theo von Hartmann: Who? Paul Henderson: The great film actor. Theo von Hartmann: I'm sorry. But I have not heard of such person.
  • Paul Henderson: That's what's wrong with the present day horrorfilms. There's no realism. Not like the old ones, the great ones. Frankenstein. Phantom of the Opera. Dracula - the one with Bela Lugosi of course, not this new fellow.
Movie Trivia:
  • This was the first feature film credit for British television director Peter Duffell.
  • Vincent Price was first offered the part of Paul Henderson.
  • In the "Waxworks" segment one of the figures Peter Cushing passes (several times) is of Christopher Lee as Dracula.
  • Horror movie star Paul Henderson (Jon Pertwee) says he misses the "old, great" horror movies, and mentions "Dracula". He then adds: "the one with Bela Lugosi of course, not this new fellow", obviously referring to Christopher Lee, who's also in the film.
  • Christopher Lee can be seen reading his favourite book, "The Lord of the Rings", over 30 years before he would appear in the films based on it.
