Movie Quote(s):
  • Dracula: Raw meat. You do like raw meat?
  • Dracula: Steak tartar? Ah, yes. Steak tartar.
  • China: Can't a girl get laid around here without being burned at the stake? Mark Loftmore: [with an unlit cigarette in his mouth] Anybody got a match? China: I do what I want when I want. Dig it or fuck off.
  • [Mark is threatened by an armed French guard] Mark Loftmore: I'm sorry, I was never very good at languages.
  • Mark Loftmore: One last thing before you kill us Lincoln! Mr. Lincoln: You know my name? Mark Loftmore: I should. You murdered my grandfather! Mr. Lincoln: You're a Loftmore! Old horror lord's grandchild. Well, well, well, what a coincidence. It's such a small world! Mark Loftmore: Well, then why do you want to end it? Mr. Lincoln: Somebody has to.
Movie Trivia:
  • Writer/director Anthony Hickox wrote the screenplay in only 3 days.
  • Effects artist Bob Keen spent 18 hours a day for 8 weeks working on the monsters in the film.
  • During the scene in the basement of the vampire's mansion, crew on the sets said that it was "The bloodiest thing ever put to the screen". Much of the gore in the scene was cut by the MPAA.
  • 18 wax horror exhibits are seen, including: - Count Dracula - the Phantom of the Opera - a witch - the Marquis De Sade - a werewolf - a mummy - a voodoo priest - a zombie - an urban legend killer (an axe murderer) - the Invisible Man - Frankenstein's monster - an Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) pod - a demonic baby (from It's Alive (1974/I)) - an alien creature - a "cobra-man" circus freak - Jack the Ripper - Mr. Hyde - and a golem.
  • After the policeman visits the Waxwork with Mark, he realizes that many of the statues of the victims resemble missing people from posters he had seen. These posters are actually just copies of one of the posters from the opening credits of The Lost Boys (1987). All of the missing person posters have a single photo of a missing adult, but the posters all have the same information of two missing children on the poster: William G. Bailey 7-26-62 Sandy blond hair brown eyes Missing since August 6, 1979 (or 1973) Call the Santa Carla Police Department Susan Wilbur 5-30-69 Black Hair Blue Eyes Missing since February 6, 1983.
