Freddie Francis took over directing from Don Sharp at short notice.

This film is often mistaken for a “Hammer” production, mainly by the casting of “Hammer” veteran lead actors Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, supporting players Michael Ripper and Duncan Lamont, make-up artist Roy Ashton and cinematographer turned director Freddie Francis.

Larry Taylor was dubbed by Michael Ripper.
