Noel Willman and Jennifer Daniel crossed swords again in Hammer’s The Reptile (1966). Willman’s other appearance for them was in The Vengeance of She (1968).

The climax of this film, in which a swarm of bats attacks the castle and the vampires, appears to have originally been intended for The Brides of Dracula (1960), but the burning windmill finale was substituted there for budgetary reasons.
