Wallis; Sc: Herbert Baker, Walter de Leon, Ed Simmons & Norman Lear; Ph: Ernest Lazlo; Ed: Warren Low; Art: Hal Pereira & Franz Bachelin; Sfx: Gordon Jennings & Paul Lerpae; Mu: Wally Westmore; Mus: Leith Stevens & Joseph J.

Small time crook Larry Todd, (Martin), is being pursued by gangsters when he encounters a woman, (Scott), who has inherited a castle on a Carribean island rumoured to be haunted and hold a hidden horde of treasure. Together with Todd's friend, (Lewis), they arrive at the creepy castle encountering zombies and gangsters.

THE SCARLET JUNGLE (1963) see Die Scharlachrote Deschunke

SCARS OF DRACULA (1970/Levitt-Pickman/Hammer/EMI) 96mins. UK.

The villagers try to burn down Dracula's castle, but he survives to send a number of man-killing bats upon them only to be impaled on a flaming lightening rod.
Although not the best of the series and the last Hammer made in a period setting, this is the most sadistic, including scenes of Klove being tortured and one of Dracula's vampire brides being killed while her blood is sucked from her sliced flesh.
Sequel: DRACULA AD. '72.

Count Regula, (Lee), returns from the dead after his execution for killing twelve virgins and threatens a man, (Barker), and a woman, (Dor), with his pit and pendulum device to obtain their blood and ensure his immortality by claiming the life of his thirteenth virgin.

The suspect leads the investigation to Doctor Browning, (Price), who is actually an insane synthetic man using the choicest body parts to try and make more superhumans with abilities similar to his own for a fascist power.
Producer Subotsky re-edited the film cutting most the plot twists.
Although quite disjointed, this is a lively horror film that has found some cult success.

"Guarenteed. The 8 greatest shocks ever filmed!"

A masked psychotic is brutally slaying all the models that frequent a fashion salon that is used as a front to traffic drugs while searching for a diary that details the model's sexual activities and narcotic indulgence.
A well photographed erotically charged, sadistic police thriller, but with an unimaginative and overcomplicated plot notable for the killings that depict sex and gore in a way that didn't become popular until the teenkill films of the '80's. A woman has her faced pressed against a red hot stove, another has her head smashed repeatedly against a tree and another has a blade lined mask slammed onto her face.

"Everytime you stop and think, "I'm alive, and being alive is fantastic". Everytime such a thing happens, you're part of the circus of Dr. Lao". - Dr. Lao.
"The whole world is a circus if you know how to look at it". - Dr. Lao.
Ruthless businessman Clint Stark, (O'Connell), secretly learns that a railroad is going to be built near the western town of Abalane and endeavors to buy up the town to turn a handsome profit. A young newspaper reporter, (Ericson), tries to fight Stark's plans when all the rest of the townsfolk can think about is the money Stark is offering them. A mysterious Chinese showman named Dr. Lao, (Randall), arrives in the town with his circus and exposes the people's follies and individual failings with a bizarre series of circus performances.
A delightful family fantasy in which Randall portrays seven characters including an abominable snowman, Merlin the magician, and Medusa. Other creatures featured include the Loch Ness monster that shrinks to the size of a small fish when wet, and a talking serpent that looks like Arthur O'Connell. Although Randall is credited with the portrayal of Pan, astute cinema goers will notice that John Ericson doubled as the horned god for the unusual dance sequence.
