This was filmed by the same studio (Universal), using the same sets, costumes, props and equipment, but a different cast and crew. They were shot simultaneously, with the English version being filmed during the day, and the Spanish version filmed at night.
The biggest difference is that this version was filmed in Spanish, for Spanish-speaking audiences. The story is identical, and most of the film is scene-for-scene and word-for-word (translated). However, there is extra dialogue in this version, making it a longer film. The cast is also different. Carlos Villarias replaced Lugosi in the title role. The Spanish version has been noted for being more elaborate in style: there is more camera movement, and some scenes are more dramatic and exaggerated than in the English version, eg when Dracula knocks the mirror out of Van Helsing's hand.
