Day 20 of the 32 Days of Halloween festival is upon us. And we’ve decided to take a couple of animated shows and their themed episodes. Let’s begin with Animaniacs…because why not. Here’s some of their patented style...

Dr. Black and Mr. Hyde

32 Days of Halloween Part VIII, Movie Night...

Five years ago, we posted the trailer for Dr. Black and Mr. Hyde. It is one of the greatest trailers in all of history, never mind the blaxploitation horror subgenre. If you have not seen it already, I strongly urge you to do that now...

House on Skull Mountain

32 Days of Halloween Part VIII, Day 20: The...

Day 20 here at 32 Days of Halloween has traditionally been reserved for the blaxploitation horror genre. And I know that there will come a day that we actually run out of these. But until then we press on…and it’s time to check...

Ganja and Hess

32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 20: Ganja...

Again, before we get to our Blaxploitative feature film for this evening, we spend some quality time with The Shat and his appearance on the Ray Bradbury Theater episode, “The Playground.” Would anyone who frequents this site...

Snoop Dogg as Bones

32 Days of Halloween VI, Day 20: Bones (2001)

Getting a bit of a late start today due to various and sundry bits of fun. But we shall catch up soon enough. Today kicks off with Blaxploitation traditionally, so what better way to go than with a film that served as a tribute to that...

Blacula!

32 Days of Halloween V, Movie Night No. 20:...

That’s right…as part of Blaxploitation Day of 32 Days of Halloween, it’s time to go to the #1 hit of the blaxploitation horror subgenre: Blacula. Of course, on the surface, it looks like it’s going to be 70stastic...

Sugar Hill DVD

32 Days of Halloween V, Day 20: Sugar Hill

It’s Blaxsploitation Day on 32 Days of Halloween. And our pick is voodoo zombie fest Sugar Hill. We’ll get to the trailer in a second, but the gist is this: gangsters killed Sugar’s boyfriend when he wouldn’t play...

32 Days of Halloween IV, Movie Night No. 20:...

Day 20 is a Blaxploitation Horror-themed day, but I was afraid we might not find something for you along those lines. Dr. Black and Mr. Hyde–can’t find the full film. You can get Blacula on Hulu, but Hulu is stingy about...

32 Days of Halloween IV, Day 20: Dear Abby

It’s Abby, the blaxploitation answer to The Exorcist. In fact, it was such an answer to it that Warner Brothers sued the film for being too derivative and got it yanked from cinemas. And of course, once you’ve lost that case you...
