This appears to be the first horror film ever made in which both a vampire and a werewolf are characters, anticipating Universal's House of Frankenstein (1944) (released 11 months later) and House of Dracula (1945), as well as the the recent "Underworld" and "Twilight" movies. See more »
While it is stated that Andreas is a werewolf, no explanation is given as to how or why he transforms without benefit of a full moon. However, this story appears to incorporate a different version of the werewolf legend, in which Andreas' transformations occur only when Tesla has control over his mind and therefore don't have anything to do with a full moon.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was unique in that the Vampire had a werewolf as his assistant. This werewolf wears a suit, talks, smiles and, in general, acts like a normal human being. The movie was basically a sequel to Dracula but the vampire played by Bela Lugosi could not use the name Dracula because this was a Columbia picture and Universal Studios had the legal rights to the Dracula character. But, it was still Lugosi at his scary, pompous best.
