  • 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. Edit

  • 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.
