This is the first film in which, like in the novel, Dracula begins as an old man and becomes younger as he feeds. See more »
The opening text (at least in the Spanish version) states that Bram Stoker first published "Dracula" "50 years ago". According to the filming time of this movie, that would be 1920. However, "Dracula" was first published in 1897. See more »

This film has the requisite quality of "creepiness."
Despite some relatively poor production values, this film has the requisite quality of "creepiness" that any good Dracula film really should have. Kinski is fine. This is also Christopher Lee's most accurate performance as the Count. Too bad the editing is so jumpy. It's almost like watching a documentary, or an antique silent film (but with sound). If they had just invested a little more money, this could have become "the" authentic film adaptation of the novel. As it stands, it is only for real devotees of the genre.
