More Movie Taglines:
- Forever young! Forever deadly! She lived off the life blood of male victims!
- [Confronting his alcoholic wife] Dr. Paul Talbot: It's interesting to watch a "bottle baby" defend her weakness. One thing I can say for you, your approach is always different. Today, it's complete submission. I can't even get a rise out of you. You know, I think I like you better when you're sloppy drunk and violent. That's the real you, and that's the one I like, the one that hates me and gives me a chance to hate back.
Old Malla: You will never escape me, you are the one in my dreams of blood!
Sally Howard: Well, I know you advertised for old women, but the one in the office looks like she came right out of "The Mummy's Tomb!"
Dr. Paul Talbot: [to June] You try to hide what you are in the fumes of whisky.
Dr. Paul Talbot: Old women always give me the creeps!
- Universal (then Universal-International) made this low budget horror film because they needed a second feature to play with their U.S. release of the Hammer production The Brides of Dracula (1960).
Stars Coleen Gray and Phillip Terry were so into their performances as a feuding couple that they didn't even get along off-camera either.
The nurse remarks that Old Malla looks like she came right out of The Mummy's Tomb (1942), a movie produced by Ben Pivar.
