Viva la Dracula!

I heard an interview with Guillermo Del Toro, the director of the Oscar-nominated Pan's Labyrinth, and he said that during the filming of the classic Bela Lugosi version of Dracula, a Spanish-language version of the same movie was shot with different actors on the same set.

Check it out at:

Apparently, the Spanish version was discovered in the early 90s and re-released to critical acclaim. Many horror buffs claim this version is better than the English version, especially in its cinematography and development of minor characters.
