I actually like this one quite a bit. The bat effects are ludicrous (as they are in all Hammer films). But this is by far the most mean-spirited of the Hammer Draculas. It's fun to see Lee wielding daggers and scorching hot swords. And he looks particularly cadaverous. I'd definitely put it on par with A.D. 1972 and Satanic Rites. Scars would make a good double feature with Count Yorga, Vampire. They share similar early 70s sensibilities even though Scars is a period piece.
