At a remote castle a vampire bat dribbles fresh blood over mouldering remains, resurrecting the infamous Count Dracula (Christopher Lee). Terrified villagers set fire to the castle but later discover that a swarm of vengeful bats has killed the women and children that sought sanctuary in the local church. Dracula’s latest reign of terror has begun.
In Scars of Dracula, Christopher Lee returned to his most famous role for the fifth time, and director Roy Ward Baker (Quatermass and the Pit, Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde) created the unprecedented shot of the Count scaling his castle walls. This was the last of Hammer’s traditional Dracula films and the bloodiest entry in the entire series.
