- [repeated line] Jennie Blake: What? What did you say? Count Dracula, posing as Bellac Gordal: Look at me, Jennie. You can see me if you try. You can see me in your mind. I can free your soul, Jennie. I can take you from the blackness into the light. Look at me , Jennie. Can you see me now?
Count Dracula, posing as Bellac Gordal: There is only one reality, Rachel: Death. I have come to bring you Death.
Rachel Mayberry: What are you? Count Dracula, posing as Bellac Gordal: I think you know. I think you remember.
Rachel Mayberry: They've found out about Jennie. They're waiting for her. Count Dracula, posing as Bellac Gordal: O yes? Well let them find her. She has fulfilled her purpose. We shall never be touched. The world shall spin and they all, all shall die. But not we. Rachel Mayberry: I... I don't know. Count Dracula, posing as Bellac Gordal: You only fear the unknown. Only this casing, this clumsy flesh stands between you and me. You are already balanced between two worlds. Eternity awaits you now.
[first lines] narrator: It is a known fact that there existed in Central Europe a Count Dracula. Though human in appearance and cultured in manner, he was in truth a thing undead... a force of evil... a vampire. Feeding on the blood of innocent people, he turned them into his own kind, thus spreading his evil dominion ever wider. The attempts to find and destroy this evil were never proven fully successful, and so the search continues to this very day.
- This film was first released as the top half of a double bill with The Flame Barrier (1958).
Ray Stricklyn noted in his autobiography "Angels & Demons" that co-star Norma Eberhardt had one blue eye and one brown eye. If you look carefully at a few of her closeups, even in this black and white film, you can notice the difference.
The original theatrical release prints contained a brief shot, lasting several seconds, that was in color. When the stake is driven into Jennie's heart, there is a close-up of bright red blood spurting from the wound. The approximately three foot section of color film was manually spliced into the black and white prints.
