Scars of Dracula (1970)

IMG_2327

Roy Ward Baker directs  Christopher Lee, Dennis Waterman and Patrick Troughton in this Hammer horror where Dracula is ressurected and takes in a runaway libertine. 

In all honesty I drifted in and out of this one, only giving it half my attention at best. Lee is fine as Dracula but the focus seems to be more on his lurking, grunting man servant Troughton. There also is far more sex (well Jack the Lad gropey seductions and running away afterwards past the father rather than any actual footage of the old In Out) and violence (beautiful Hammer primary red paint gore). The support cast is full of saucy raven haired beauties with piercing eyes but then you’d expect that as part of the deal. It is all a bit redundant.
