Scars is an interesting entry into the series. What with Dracula stabbing people to death and torturing his servants with red hot swords. I also found it odd that it contained some comedy early on that I don't remember seeing in any of the other movies. I thought it had alot going for it (besides the video on the DVD being GREAT), I found it interesting that Dracula's coffin is kept in a small room without a door that can only be accessed by a window 100 feet or so up from the ocean for his protection. The scene of Dracula climbing the wall of his castle!! The movie looks terrific, and I think castle Dracula is more visually interesting than ever before with a slight blackened and burned appearance and the blood red curtains, candles etc. Theres 1 shot in the room where he keeps his coffin where the camera is positioned behind the coffin looking out the window to the mountains on the horizon across the ocean, with the young hero trapped inside, really nicely composed scene. Nicely lit and claustrophobic. Question: Why bother with a Dracula resurrection scene at all? I thought it was kinda silly to have a large bat drooling blood onto his ashes. The movie doesn't take up where Taste left off so why not just start the movie with him alive in his castle? I liked it, though I admit I've not seen a Hammer Dracula that I didn't like. Now the last one I need to see is Dracula AD 1972. What do you think about the movie?
