Originally Kharis the mummy, another Universal "classic monster", was to be in the movie but was removed because of budget restrictions. See more »
Just after the scene where Dracula dissolves in the sunlight, we see the wagons driven by Doctor Niemann and Daniel pass a sign reading "Frankenstein-1km". If you look past the sign, in the distance you can see a pile of film equipment cases and crates, and even bits of scaffolding used for lighting. See more »
Mad scientist Boris Karloff escapes from prison with hunchbacked assistant Daniel (J. Carrol Naish). He plans revenge against the men who put him there and wants to revive the Frankenstein monster. Along the way they revive Dracula (John Carradine) and Lawrence Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.) pops up as the Wolf Man. Silly but enjoyable all-star monster mash. Naish, Karloff, Carradine are all very good as is Elena Verdugo as a gypsy who falls in love with Talbot. Chaney Jr. just walks through his role. No great shakes (or scares) but there's tons of atmosphere, beautiful sets, pretty good special effects and it moves quickly. Worth seeing.
