- Some elements of the plot are from Bram Stoker's story "Dracula's Guest" which was written as a chapter in his 1897 novel "Dracula," but excised due to the novel's length. It was first published in 1914, two years after Stoker's death. Other elements are loosely based on the 1872 short story "Carmilla" by Sheridan Le Fanu.
Takes place immediately after the events of Dracula (1931).
This was originally to be another project for director James Whale. The script he submitted was so "outrageous" (in various senses of the word) that he was taken off the project. A virtual list of writers submitted treatments and scripts.
The title character blinks her eyes only once in the course of the film, in a medium shot during Lady Hammond's party.
The last horror film produced under the supervision of Carl Laemmle.
