Despite the title, not one drop of blood is seen in the entire movie. 

On the initial U.K. release, the British censor wanted to give it an A rating (equivalent to PG) because of its lack of gore. Fearing that this would harm box-office returns, the distributors asked for it to be re-rated X or they wouldn’t release it. The censor concurred.

The actress in the photograph in the segment “Waxwork” is¬†Nicola Pagett who played Talia in Hammer’s “The Viking Queen” (1967).
