New this month Suggested correction: While it is possible to interpret the sound as a woman saying "now", the manner in which it would be said makes it very unlikely it was someone on set giving a cue. It is long and drawn out, more like "neeoow." Someone on set would probably say and concisely "Now." It is far more likely this is another place in the movie where many sounds are overlaid for eerie effect. If I had to pin it on something exactly I would say it represents Lucy responding to Dracula's presence with an inviting sound.

Continuity mistake: When Jonathan is dining in the castle, as Dracula says "That relationship was not entirely successful", there is nothing on Jonathan's fork, but in the next shot, there's a piece of food on it. The food stays there during the next few shots, until Dracula says "It is no laughing matter", and the fork is suddenly empty again. (00:13:55)
