Scars of Dracula DVD Christopher Lee

Scars of Dracula is a 1970 British horror film directed by Roy Ward Baker for Hammer Studios.

It stars Christopher Lee as Count Dracula, alongside Dennis Waterman, Jenny Hanley, Patrick Troughton, and Michael Gwynn. Although disparaged by some critics, the film does restore a few elements of Bram Stoker's original character: The Count is introduced as an "icily charming host"; he has command over nature; and he is seen scaling the walls of his castle. It also gives Lee more to do and say than any other Hammer Dracula film except its first, 1958's Horror of Dracula.

A prologue shows local villagers rising up and setting fire to Castle Dracula. But when they return home, they find bats have swarmed inside the church where their women were waiting. Every single woman and child in the village is dead...

After being caught with the burgomasters' daughter, libertine Paul Carlson flees by jumping into a nearby coach. This deposits him near Count Dracula's mountaintop castle and there he becomes Dracula's latest victim. His more sober brother Simon Carlson and his fiancee Sarah Framsen come searching for him and end up fighting the Prince of Darkness.
