Last classic in the Hammer's Dracula series, because it was the last film set in the right Victorian/Gothic milieu: 19th century fairytale Transylvania of castles, peasants, pretty girls and adorable rubber bats. No cheap Sax Rohmer pastiches or boring martial arts films! Scars is sometimes criticized for it's violence - I felt it very odd, that Kim Newman, who never abhorred gore or fought for cleaner films, was so negative for this film's (unnecessary, but sporadic and unrealistic) violence and "immorality" (?)! Come on, in the world of
the sick crap like horror and exploitation , Hammer's richly romantic fruitcakes are breath of fresh air! James Bernard's score is lovely, perfect icing of the cake.
