The scene where Dracula lifts Phoebe up and she screams was done in one take. Duncan Regehr wouldn't wear his red contacts or fangs around the five year old Ashley Bank because it scared her too much. For the scene, director Fred Dekker just told Ashley to scream once the platform raised her. When she asked, "When?", Dekker told her, "Oh, you'll know," and proceeded to shoot. The terrified scream you hear when Dracula opens his eyes is Ashley's genuine scream of fright. See more »
Frankenstein's monster is called Frankenstein in the credits and by Phoebe several times. Frankenstein was the doctor who created the creature, not the creature. This point is even discussed by the characters in the film. See more »
The TV print shown on TNT contains roughly four minutes of additional deleted scenes not included on the DVD release, including:
1. In the opening scene, immediately following the opening title, one of Van Helsing's men fights off one of the vampire women and accidentally pulls the stake out of Dracula's chest, resurrecting the Count.
2. An extended "comedy routine" scene between the two pilots flying Dracula and Frankenstein's coffins in the World War 2 bomber plane.
3. A scene between Phoebe and her mother in the kitchen. The mother tells Phoebe to go watch her favorite TV show, but Phoebe says her PTA won't let her on the grounds it contains "too much sex," which leads the mother to retort under her breath, "We could use a little sex in this house."
4. An extended scene where the boys are discussing whether or not they know what a virgin is, leading to them asking Rudy if he knows any.
5. When the boys and Frankenstein go to the mansion to retrieve the amulet, there is an additional scene showing them approaching the house where Horace expresses his fear.
6. A scene of Rudy putting his arm around Patrick's sister (to her disgust) as they observe the carnage following the movie's finale.
