Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Taste the Blood of Dracula was originally not going to feature Dracula at all, much like The Brides of Dracula, as actor Christopher Lee was becoming increasingly reluctant to reprise the role and the producers not expecting to convince him to do so. The script was rewritten to include Dracula after the producers were finally able to coax Lee back to the role. [1]
  • Russell Hunter, who plays Felix the manager of the bordello is clearly wearing a skullcap.
