Dracula arrives at Dr. Edelman's office asking for a cure to his vampirism. However, this is a ruse by Dracula to get near Dr. Edelman's beautiful female assistant and turn her into a vampire. Meanwhile, a sincere Lawrence Talbot, AKA the Wolfman, arrives seeking a cure for his lycanthropy. When Dr. Edelman's first attempt fails, Talbot tries to commit suicide by jumping off a cliff but instead finds a network of underground caves where Frankensteins Monster is in stasis. Chaos ensues as the three monsters fight for dominance of each other.

Did you know...

Last of Universal's original FRANKENSTEIN series of seven films, except for 1948'S "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, " shot from September 21-October 25, 1945, released December 7.

This movie was part of the SON OF SHOCK package of 21 titles released to television in 1958, which followed the original SHOCK THEATER release of 52 features one year earlier. Which, of course, lead to the fantastic world of Horror Host's!

Lionel Atwill who played Police Inspector Holtz  was terminally ill with cancer during filming and died shortly after the production wrapped.

How about a few more things like

When the vampire bat is flying, the strings guiding it are visible.

The skeleton of Dr. Niemann in the cave has a highly visible, perfectly even, horizontal seam line running all the way around the top of the head; it is obviously a skeleton model often sold by medical and education supply houses to schools.

And my favorite 

Some scenes of the Frankenstein monster use stock footage from Bride of Frankenstein and The Ghost of Frankenstein wherein the differences between Boris Karloff. Lon Chaney Jr. and Glenn Strange in the same role become apparent.
