Paul Henderson: I'm Paul Henderson. Theo von Hartmann: Who? Paul Henderson: The great film actor. Theo von Hartmann: I'm sorry. But I have not heard of such person.
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.
- This was the first feature film credit for British television director Peter Duffell.
Vincent Price was first offered the part of Paul Henderson.
In the "Waxworks" segment one of the figures Peter Cushing passes (several times) is of Christopher Lee as Dracula.
Horror movie star Paul Henderson (Jon Pertwee) says he misses the "old, great" horror movies, and mentions "Dracula". He then adds: "the one with Bela Lugosi of course, not this new fellow", obviously referring to Christopher Lee, who's also in the film.
Christopher Lee can be seen reading his favourite book, "The Lord of the Rings", over 30 years before he would appear in the films based on it.
