Executive producer Michael Carreras' name does not appear until the closing credits. The opening and closing cast credits vary slightly in order. The film begins with a voice-over narration explaining that although Count Dracula has been killed, his disciples live on. Marie Devereux's name, which does not appear in the opening credits, is misspelled in the closing cast credits as "Deveruex". Andree Melly's name is mistakenly listed as "Audrey" in several reviews.
       According to a February 15, 1960 Hollywood Reporter news item, Monarch Books planned to release a novelization of the film. As noted in a July 1960 Los Angeles Times article, at the close of Hammer Films' 1958 Horror of Dracula, "Count Dracula" was destroyed, with only the character of "Van Helsing" left alive. For more information on other films featuring Dracula, please consult the Series Index and the entry for the 1931 Universal film Dracula (AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40).
       The Brides of Dracula was one of several films Hammer produced in cooperation with Universal that remade or featured characters from classic Universal horror films from the 1930s and 1940s. For additional information, please consult the entry below for the 1959 version of The Mummy.
