  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The reason this movie still exists. According to The Other Wiki, the studio who made the film was sued by the estate of Bram Stoker, and the courts ordered all copies of the film to be burned.

The 'crack' was the United States, which didn't recognize most foreign copyright claims until decades later, by which time the original book was public domain and the claim against the film moot.
