This was to be the second 3-D film designed and directed by William Cameron Menzies. Contrary to some opinion, there is no evidence to substantiate that his previous film, Invaders from Mars (1953), was designed nor planned for for 3-D, and certainly was not shot in this process. Menzies, who was known as a director with a very "dimensional" style (eg. many shots are focused in layers), only directed one other 3-D film previous to this: "Fun in the Sun," a short that was shot for the aborted Sol Lesser production, "The 3-D Follies". This would be his final film as production designer and director. See more »
Kitty and Edith's rooms in the castle have their windows blocked with stone. That is shown in a shot of Kitty's room the night they arrived. The only light sources are candles and the fireplaces. Yet, in the morning, both bedrooms are bathed in light as if the sun were streaming in through these blocked windows. See more »

I had never actually heard of this film before stumbling across it on Netflix. I can see why it might not get a lot of attention -- it does not have any big names actors, or even cult actors, and the writer, director and producer are all relatively unknown these days. This is too bad, though... the film is on par with such stories as "The House on Haunted Hill".
I am told this film looks even better in 3-D. I can see why it might, with such moments as the bat flying towards the camera. Either way, this film deserves more attention...
