Trivia Horror movie star Paul Henderson (Jon Pertwee) says that he misses the "old," "great" horror movies, and mentions Dracula (1931). He then adds: "the one with Bela Lugosi of course, not this new fellow," obviously referring to Christopher Lee, who played John Reid in the film. See more »
Goofs The newspaper that Sgt. Martin is reading is dated Monday, June 8, 1971. In 1971, June 8 fell on a Tuesday. See more »

Quotes Paul Henderson: That's what's wrong with the present day horrorfilms. There's no realism. Not like the old ones, the great ones. Frankenstein. Phantom of the Opera. Dracula - the one with Bela Lugosi of course, not this new fellow.
