In the days before his reign as “The King of Cartoons”, William Marshall brought his soulful voice to bear in one the definitive works of the “blaxploitation” genre, Blacula. … In 1780, after visiting Count Dracula, Manuwalde is turned into a vampire and locked in a coffin. The scene shifts to 1972, when two antique collectors transport the coffin to Los Angeles. The two men open the coffin and unleash Blacula on the city of Los Angeles. Blacula soon finds Tina, who is his wife, Luva, reincarnated, and gains her love. Tina’s friend, Dr. Gordon, discovers Blacula is a vampire and hunts him down.”(Clint Poskozim, IMDB)
Featuring the funkiest soundtrack in horror film history, this is a must see film for 70’s film fans. Watch for Canadian legend Gordon Pinsent as Lt Peters!
