Blacula The Complete Collection
1972’s Blacula and 1973’s Scream Blacula Scream are prime examples of the blaxplotation genre from the 70’s. Known to follow the same rules of the exploitation films of the same time but typically made for a black audience, the films featured funk and soul music with black casts. William Crain (Bracula) and Bob Kelljan (Scream Blacula Scream) directed two films that featured William Marshall in the title role as Blacula. The sequel film is best remembered for starring Pam Grier when she was first starting off her career.

Blacula – In 1780, African Prince Mamuwalde (Marshall) pays a visit to Count Dracula in Transylvania, seeking his support in ending the slave trade. Instead, the evil count curses his noble guest and transforms him into a vampire! Released from his coffin nearly two centuries later by a pair of luckless decorators, Mamuwalde emerges as Blacula, one cool, dressed to kill, dude strollin the streets of L.A. on a nightly quest for human blood and fine women!

Scream, Blacula, Scream – Blacula lives, and only the legendary Pam Grier has the power to deep-six his reign of terror. William Marshall returns as the noble African prince turned bloodthirsty fiend in this hair-raising sequel to the terrifying hit Blacula! This time, it s voodoo power versus vampire fury when Willis (Richard Lawson), the son of the late high priestess, seeks revenge on the cultists who have chosen his foster sister Lisa (Grier) as their new leader. Hoping to curse Lisa, Willis unwittingly resurrects Blacula s earthly remains and lets loose the Prince of Darkness and his freaked-out army of the undead!
