- The first third of the film was originally going to be a prologue set in the Middle Ages, with Bela Lugosi returning as a pre-undead Count Dracula. This would have ultimately served as an Origin Story, showing that Dracula became a vampire after being cursed by a demon. The script had to be heavily rewritten after the censors objected to the more sexual elements of the flashback scenes (such as Dracula seeking women to join his harem), meaning Lugiosi still got paid without even showing up in the movie.
- Boris Karloff and Cesar Romero were initially planned to appear in the film, but dropped out for unknown reasons.
