For blaxploitation movie night here at 32 Days of Halloween, we go to the inevitable sequel to that classic of the genre, Blacula, and bring you… Scream Blacula Scream. Not only do you get the return of William “I Am a Badass” Marshall as Blacula, but Pam Grier is now in the mix. Your rival voodoo priest at the beginning there, the one who does the Bad Thing, is indeed Richard Lawson. You’re recognizing him from V, most likely. The original series, of course. Also look for Craig T. Nelson in a small role. But otherwise…classic stuff.
“Hey look, man, I don’t mind being a vampire and all that shit but this really ain’t hip!” Amazing. Enjoy.

I could listen to William Marshall read the telephone book.
Anyway, MGM has released both Blacula films as a double feature DVD. Oddly, this film is on Amazon Instant Video free if you have Amazon Prime, but the first film costs $2.99 to rent. And normally I love the soundtracks for these films…but I can’t find where one was ever released. Alas.
Previously on this day, we’ve checked out The Thing With Two Heads and Blackenstein. We also, before we had settled into the blaxploitation theme, checked out Bloody Pit of Horror.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
