Summary: Count Dracula (Francis Lederer) travels from his native Balkans to America to spread his domination. He assumes the identity of a Czech artist whom he murders en route to the States, and then moves in with the dead man's aunt (Greta Granstedt) and cousin (Norma Eberhardt) in a small town in California. His odd behavior is attributed by all to his eccentricity... but when immigration officials begin an investigation of him, he embarks on a murderous spree that no one in the quiet little town will ever forget.
Note: - Francis Lederer said that the only film he really regretted doing was "The Return Of Dracula".
- The modern-day vampire hunters inspired Marvel Comics' TOMB OF DRACULA comic series.
- There is a brief color insert shot (Colour was around then, but very expensive) of blood gushing during the staking of a vampire woman.
- The coffin sequence with the thick mist was achieved through double printing (having every frame printed twice).
