Christopher Lee Gave a Great Performance! (by whpratt1)
Some how I seemed to have missed this Horror film and was pleasantly surprised to view a great film from the 70's, that held my interest from the very beginning of the film to the very end. Christopher Lee, Dracula ,"Tale of the Mummy",'98 enjoyed the very young and beautiful women that seemed to visit him at his castle or were drawn to him by his favorite pets, BATS! Bodies were chopped up and put in acid and Dracula beat his faithful servant with a burning sword on his back in order to keep him away from his intended victims. If you love Christopher Lee and missed this <more>
film, this is the film for YOU! Dracula has great burning eyes that seem to pierce into your very soul as you watch him take complete control over his victims!
This is a sequel to Taste the blood of Dracula. It is one of the best sequels ever. This very scary. It has great special effects. It also has a great story line. This movie as great acting. Dracula is resurrected. And continues his rain of terror. This is one of the scariest movies ever made. If you like really scary movies. Then you need to see this movie. It is very intense. Dracula A.D 1972 is a little better. The satanic rites of Dracula is also a little better. This is the sixth hammer Dracula movie and it is scarier then the first five. This is scary then The Exorcist. IF this movie <more>
does not scary you then no movie will. This movie is a must see.
Paul Christopher Matthews , a consummate ladies' man, has the misfortune of being caught with the burgomaster's daughter by the father himself. Trying to evade his guards, Paul winds up at Dracula's castle when he can not find shelter anywhere else when his horse carriage was driven way too far from his village.Simon Dennis Waterman , Paul's brother, and his gorgeous girlfriend Sarah Jenny Hanley , seek out of their village to try and find him not knowing what evil lied ahead.This is continuing right after "Taste the Blood of Dracula" and we watch as a bat swoops <more>
over the remaining ash of the Count releasing blood from it's mouth. That very blood will revive Dracula back to his former bodily state where he can again unleash terror on the countryside using servant Klove Patrick Troughton, "Dr Who" fans might remember him as the second Time Lord to bring him victims. A specific bat, the one that fed the ashes of Dracula blood, does much for the Count such as killing, spying, and sending messages to it's Master. Can Dracula's reign of terror be quenched? Or, will he now have enough weapons to continue his blood-lust and evil? By far, the most sadistic and violent of the Hammer vampire films to that point, this is by far Christopher Lee's best rendition of Dracula. He's able to really be vicious and nihilistic, almost like a released animal from it's cage at times. His eyes are blood red as he prepares to take a bite out of females who wander into his midst, and his bat tears into the faces of his enemies and foes. The ending is quite a hoot involving fire which starts from a bolt of lightning as Dracula squares off with Simon.
"A Night to Remember" director Roy Ward Baker helmed the liveliest "Dracula" sequel, "Scars of Dracula," with Christopher Lee reprising the role for the fifth time in the Hammer Films franchise. "Scars of Dracula" followed "Taste the Blood of Dracula" but preceded "Dracula, 1972 A.D." For the record, Dracula's groveling custodian bears most of those titular scars. Whether he went by his real name Anthony Hinds or his pseudonym John Elder, Hinds/Elder penned a screenplay far more ambitious and audacious in its scope, violence, <more>
horror, and sex than earlier "Dracula" movies. Mind you, despite its cheesy bat massacre, "Scars of Dracula" qualifies as the bloodiest Hammer film. Moreover, "Scars of Dracula" was the first to receive an R-rating in the United States. Dracula punishes his disobedient caretaker by applying the red-hot sword to his back. Further, the caretaker accepts his punishment as if he approved of being punished. Can we say masochism? Of course, the bats are hopelessly phony. Nevertheless, the scene where a bat mauls the face of the priest in the church like a piranha is terrific. The clergy had come under increasing attack in 1970s movies. This scene alone should have landed the film on the video nasties list in Great Britain. Indeed, "Scars of Dracula" is the most supernatural of Hammer's "Dracula" franchise. Ultimately, it is the one "Dracula" film from Hammer where the Count boasts more screen time than usual. He also has a fiery death scene that suggests greater powers were at work to vanquish him since mere mortals could not finish him off. Inevitably, this quasi-invincibility added stature to Christopher Lee's immortal creationThe opening gambit could easily have provided material for an entire movie. Although it somewhat picks up the narrative thread from the previous London-based Dracula opus, "Scars of Dracula" takes place primarily in rural Europe as earlier "Dracula" movies. A farmer's daughter has been killed by a vampire. The introductory credits appear as her sad father totes her lifeless remains to the village. The inn landlord Michael Ripper of "The Creeping Flesh" assembles the villagers. They load up both sufficient fuel and timber, march Dracula's castle through the woods, trick Dracula's custodian into letting them inside and set fire to the premises. Of course, their well-intentioned efforts avail them little because Dracula rests in a chamber with no door, accessible only by a high window. Ironically, before he allowed them to approach the castle, the priest uttered a prayer to protect his flock. When they return triumphantly from Dracula's castle, the priest congratulates them on the success of their mission. "We must give thanks," the priest rejoices, "thanks to our savior for his protection." The villagers agree. The priest turns to leave with them. "Let us go to our church and tell our loved ones they are safe." Initially, before he supervised their departure, the landlord ordered his wife Marie television actress Margo Boht to gather the rest of the village into the church. The last thing that the landlord could imagine happened. No sooner have they opened the church doors than four vampire bats swoop out past them. The men discover that the rest of the villagers lay blood-splattered and dead in the house of worship. Never have so many people been slaughtered during the first ten minutes in a Hammer "Dracula!" The resurrection scene in "Scars of Dracula" has got to be the most outrageous of the franchise. A blood-dripping vampire bat shows up whether by devilish designs or otherwise we never learn at the place where Dracula died in "Taste the Blood of Dracula" and pukes blood on the Count's remains. Presto, Count Dracula is reconstituted into an immaculate Christopher Lee. Let the blood-sucking begin! Meanwhile, a carefree young Lothario, Paul Carlson Christopher Matthews of "Scream and Scream Again" , finds himself fleeing from the Burgomaster Bob Todd of "Burke & Hare" because the Burgomaster's daughter, Alice Delia Lindsay of "The Devil's Widow" , has accused him of wantonly having his way with her. Alice runs around with a bed sheet concealing her breasts and vagina. However, she cavorts about with her plucky buttocks bare for all-to-see in two shots as she leaves a room and romps up some stairs. The Burgomaster's men pursue Paul, and he makes a momentary appearance at birthday party for a girlfriend, Sarah, and then leaps from a high window into a stagecoach that takes him off deep stumbles into the woods.Paul has no luck finding anybody who will give him shelter. Predictably, things get worse. Eventually, he takes refuge at the worst place imaginable--Dracula's castle. Dracula is very civil to him when he arrives. Indeed, Dracula's dark-haired hostess, Tania, decides to sleep with Paul. The Count catches them in bed together and his rage at seeing what she had planned to do to Paul prompts Dracula to stab her "Psycho" style repeatedly before he quenches his lust for her blood. This is the first time that Dracula has behaved in this fashion. In "Horror of Dracula," he drove a vampire woman from sinking her fangs into Jonathan Harker. Presumably, since she had slept with him, Dracula was punishing her for cheating on him. Eventually, Paul's brother Simon Dennis Waterman of "Man in the Wilderness" sets out to find him with Sarah Framsen Jenny Hanley of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" tagging along despite Simon's protests. Meantime, Paul discovers Dracula's coffin in a room that has no door. Klove Patrick Troughton of "The Omen" explains that the Master sleeps where nobody can reach him. Baker stages a neat scene where we see Dracula leaving through the window of his room and scaling the architecture to the windows above. Actually, Bram Stoker wrote about Dracula's ability to scale walls."Scars of Dracula" qualifies as one of the best of the Hammer "Dracula" films.
This is a really good Hammer Horror Dracula film. It is the 5th in the Christopher Lee Dracula series and a devilishly delightful one at that! In this one, we finally get to see Dracula on screen more often and hear him speak quite a bit more too. This 5th Lee Dracula film is definitely an excellent, solid Dracula flick.This is a film that critics and fans of Lee's Dracula seems to be split on - some loved it, other hated it. It's really best for the viewer to decide if they liked the movie or not... just like any other film. I am personally pleased with the "Scars of <more>
Dracula".Although "Scars" picks up where "Taste the Blood" left off you really don't have to watch any of the other Lee Dracula films to know what is going on in "Scars".9.5/10
The last period Hammer horror film with Dracula. The story isn't really that good--just a bunch of young, good-looking, talentless young actors getting involved with Dracula Christopher Lee .There are MANY things wrong with this film: 1 The plot is slight and heavily padded even at 90 minutes 2 There are some ridiculously fake rubber bats 3 The special effects are dreadful 4 With two exceptions the acting is even worse than usual for a Hammer film 5 Dracula stabs a woman vampire to death why??? with an obviously fake knife and THEN drinks her blood. How could a knife kill a <more>
vampire? And WHY did he kill her?This is considered the worst Lee Dracula film. I disagree. I think it's one of the best. For one thing it is easily the goriest Hammer Dracula film it was the first one to get an R rating here in the US with some mild nudity thrown in. The violence is strong and savage and played to the hilt by Lee. Also there are two sequences that come directly from Bram Stoker's original Dracula novel--Dracula sleeping in a room with no way in or out--except a window; and when Dracula climbs UP the castle wall from window to window. It was great seeing Hammer at least for once TRYING to get some of Stoker's creation on screen. Also Patrick Troughton is very good as Dracula's servant Klove and even Christopher Matthews has a few moments as the doomed Paul. But Lee's acting is the main reason to see this. He has more screen time and dialogue in this than any of the other Draculas and he just gives out an incredible performance. You can't take your eyes off him when he's on screen.Supposedly Lee and director Roy Ward Baker HATED this film they blamed Hammer management for forcing them but they shouldn't. It's very scary and well-done. Recommended.
A Sadistic & Violent Dracula Film (by spacemonkey_fg)
Title: Scars of Dracula 1970 Directed by: Ray Ward Baker Cast: Christopher Lee, Dennis Waterman, Jenny Hanly, Patrick Throughton, Christopher Mathews Review: How many here enjoyed Horror of Dracula? Did you like its creepiness? Did you dig its heavy atmosphere? Did you shiver at Draculas evil blood shot stare? Well have I got news for you.Those of you who have not seen this flick, or are just discovering Hammer films, go and search this one out. It's a very enjoyable and creepy Dracula tale, that will please fans of Dracula films and gore alike! I've seen some of the best hammer <more>
Dracula films and I have seen some of the worst, and all I can say is that this one ranks way up there as a highly enjoyable Count Dracula story, which I'm sad to say is sometimes bombarded by critics and even by Christopher Lee himself as being a weak entry into the series. Me? I thought it was a kick ass vampire movie, old school style of course, but mega fun non the less. The only reason for it being called a "weak"entry is because it has more violence then other Hammer films. This in my opinion does not make it weak, if anything it made it a cooler film to watch. It made it more of a horror film.The story is about a young womanizer who goes by the name Paul Christopher Mathews . Hes escaping the local authorities for having his way with some important dudes daughter. Anyhows on his way to escaping he ends up in Draculas castle. After that his brother Simon Dennis Waterman , decides to go and look for him with his girlfriend Sarah Jenny Hanley . What they encounter is Count Dracula himself who of course first offers them his hospitality, then proceeds to try and suck their blood! Even though this film is sans Peter Cushing and that's a sad thing any day of the week, we do get some really cool and likable characters. First there's the Simon character played by Dennis Waterman. He is very headstrong and valiant. Facing off Klove in some scenes and Dracula himself towards the end. There's Sarah played by Jenny Hanly who is so beautiful and delicate yet she herself is valiant and daring when she has to be. Also there's this one character that I guess was supposed to replace Peter Cushing and it's the Priest played by Michael Gwyn. He even looks a bit like Peter Cushing but in my opinion cant even be compared, simply because Cushing has such presence not so with The Priest. In Scars of Dracula we also see a character that was also presented in Dracula : Prince of Darkness which is Draculas day time protector. He is this Igor-like character called Klove. He presents a nice twist in the movie. Not gonna go into details, but he is part of what made the movie a little different.Dracula is a bit more evil, sadistic and violent in this film than in others, for example he is seen using weapons such as daggers and swords to express his fury, instead of the more traditional ways were used to seeing him use. There's this really cool scene which I very much enjoyed in which Dracula uses a burning hot sword! Cool scene! The movie has a lot of classic horror images and it is filled with all the horror ambiance and imagery we've come to expect from a Hammer film but pushed a little further. For example the fog is heavy and thick in this one, Draculas castle is huge and haunting, and the sound of the wind blowing almost never stops in the scenes that take place up in Draculas castle. A nice little touch if you ask me. Also there's full moons, ans howling wolfs in the distance, and lets not forget the giant vampire bats! They are all over the place in this film aiding Dracula in his evil schemes. These bats are responsible for some of the most gruesome scenes in the film. And there's also a wink at Vlad the Impailer for in one scene Drac impales one of his adversaries.Also another scene that made this film special was one scene in which Dracula crawls out of his lair through the window...and then proceeds to scale the wall, spider-man style. This comes directly out of the Bramstokers novel so I found it amusing. Equally amusing was the fact that this was the only time that this had been shown on film. The other film that did it was in the Jhon Badham version of Dracula were Frank Langella does the scaling up the walls.Be on the look out also for a mega cool demise for Dracula, I think the final sequence in this film is spectacular, and in it I saw the inspiration and the muse for Jerry Dandridges fiery death sequence in Fright Night, speaking of which, there's a scene in this flick which actually appears in Fright Night. Its towards the end of the film. It involves a giant vampire bat trying to take away a crucifix from Sarahs neck. We see this scene playing on Charlies TV set at some point in Fright Night. It seems to me that there's a little bit of all these Hammer films in Fright Night.Finally I think that anyone fond of Dracula films, and specially Hammer films will find this film highly enjoyable, because of Christopher Lees evil performance, high atmosphere, Gothic sets and the high blood quotient for a Hammer film anyways Don't go expecting a huge bloodbath, by todays standards its tame, but by Hammer films standards up to that time, its got lots of the red stuff. Expect a fun ride into Gothic atmospheric horror hammer style! Rating: 41/2 out of 5
Dracula Is Back... And More Evil Than Ever (by Witchfinder-General-666)
Roy Ward Baker's "Scars Of Dracula" of 1970 is not only by far the goriest and most violent of the awesome Dracula movies from Hammer Studios, it is also one of the best sequels. Count Dracula, played once again with greatness by Christopher Lee, is more vengeful, blood-thirsty and sadistic than ever, and the once again excellent eerie Hammer atmosphere makes "Scars Of Dracula" an must-see for Horror fans.The story is, admittedly, not too elaborate, in some minor parts the script has its flaws, and the film has some cheesy moments, but what the hell, it remains <more>
suspenseful and creepy and top-notch horror entertainment anyway! As mentioned above, Count Dracula is crueler than ever. His thirst for blood has not only increased, but he also has a big desire for torturous punishments and brutality in general. His powers include the ability to control animals predominantly bats . Count Dracula has, of course, always been a scary and evil villain in the Hammer films, but in "Scars Of Dracula" he is the Devil himself!The movie begins with Dracula's admittedly slightly cheesy resurrection when a bat drops blood on his rotting ashes. After some girls fall victim to the vampire, angry villagers try to burn the count's castle, and have to notice that they are not capable of fighting the Prince of Darkness, who immediately takes terrible revenge When a young man has to flee his town after spending the night with the burgomaster's daughter, he comes to the area where Dracula is striking terror into people's hearts, people who are living in constant fear and who are therefore anything but hospitable towards strangers "Scars Of Dracula" is, in my opinion, one of the greatest Dracula-sequels from the Hammer Studios. The original of 1958 remains unmatched, of course, but out of the sequels, "Scars of Dracula" is certainly one of the creepiest and most atmospheric. The violence is more graphic than in any of the other Dracula movies from Hammer, and although some effects in the movie may look a bit fake, the gory parts are very well made, and the great score by James Bernard makes the whole thing even creepier. The movie may have some minor flaws which certainly didn't bother me , but it is an extremely creepy and highly atmospheric flick, which I highly recommend to Horror fans. Hammer fans can't afford to miss this one. 8/10
