  • The film was shot in the same castle and with the same props and lab equipment as the original Frankenstein (1931).
  • The howling wolf sound on the ride to the castle was made by director 'Brooks, Mel' .
  • When Victor finds his grandfather's private library, he finds a book titled "How I Did It." This is actually a joke for those people who have read Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. In the book, Frankenstein, Shelley never reveals how Victor reanimated dead flesh. The screenwriter obviously knew this and inserts the "How I Did It" book as a joke.
  • When Dr. Frankenstein descends the stairs into the basement of the castle there is a gargoyle on the wall made to look like director 'Brooks, Mel' .
  • The assistant property master's name, Charles Sertin, is on the third brain on the shelf.
