Five people are invited into Reinhardt residence to compete over its inheritance. As they ponder over their mysterious connection to the family line they have never heard of, it becomes apparent that their host Dr. Bela Reinhardt (Ron Chaney) has a more sinister purpose for them to be there.

!!This film has the examples of:

* AllInTheEyes: Dracula eyes are highlighted as he stands on the doorway.
* ChainPain: The Monster grabs a chain momentarily to wail on the WolfMan during their fight.
* ChildByRape: Elmira and Sully realize that the connection between all the heirs is that their mothers were "attacked" in the past, with them as a result.
* DeadGuyJunior: Dr. Bela Reinhardt was named after his mother's brother Bela.
* DeathByChildbirth: The "attack" on Whitlock's mother was brutal, and he notes that it is a miracle that she managed to hang to life long enough to give birth to him.
* {{Dedication}}: The film is dedicated to Michael R. Thomas, who played Dracula.
* GreatWhiteHunter: Whitlock, who has hunted every kind of game on the face of the earth.
* LeftHanging: Dracula makes a grand entrance, greets the two combating creatures... and the film ends, with no continuation in sight.
* MagicVersusScience: The purpose of Dr. Reinhardt's experiment is to find out if his condition is a genetic mutation or an actual magical curse, and if either of them could pass onto his children.
* MadScientist: Dr. Reinhardt. It runs in the family.
* MadScientistLaboratory: The fight between the Monster and Wolf Man takes place inside an old abandoned laboratory.
* NeckLift: The Monster appears with perfect timing to grab the Wolf Man by its throat from midair.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Dracula appears as a ClassicalMovieVampire, but his brides [[LooksLikeOrlock look like Orlock]] (all three are even credited as "Film/{{Nosferatu}}").
* PortraitPaintingPeephole: All potential heirs have such portraits in their rooms so that they can be spied on.
* TheReveal:
** Dr. Reinhardt's real surname? [[spoiler:Frankenstein]].
** [[spoiler:Chapel twins were actually adopted, and are not related to their host.]]
** FrankensteinsMonster is imprisoned in the basement.
* ShoutOut:
** Shot of Dracula standing behind a corner is framed similarly like one of the publicity stills from ''Film/{{Dracula}}''.
** As the Wolf Man and the Monster fight, one shot on the foreground shows a [[Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon a skeletal webbed hand]], [[Film/BrideOfFrankenstein a jar with a tiny skeleton inside]] and [[Film/TheMummy1932 and an Egyptian urn]].
* VampireInvitation: Dracula waits patiently on the doorway for an invitatation before he steps inside.
