User Reviews: Truth be told I expected a low budget T&A flick with very little substance however I was only right about the budget which really isn’t an issue with the right crew. Blood Scarab cannot be taken seriously featuring a mummy right out of the Hammer Horror archive, a dreadfully cast Dracula, Countess Elizabeth Bathory and Renfield as the protagonist of the film! The story though silly made the poor performances, terrible humor and lackluster effects oddly watchable but it could only take the movie so far.
Overall Blood Scarab is above par among movies of it’s ilk but that’s not saying a vast amount. Watchable if only for the novelty value.
