From the Vaults of Robert Williams
Dir. William Crain, 1972, 93 min.
In the 18th century, an African prince and his wife go on a good-will mission to Transylvania to seek assistance from the "influential" Count Dracula in order to stop the slave trade. Dracula, enslaves and 'turns' the prince, cursing him with the Blacula name. Two hundred years later, Blacula is brought to the "New World" by interior decorators and reawakened, creating havoc on Los Angeles of the early 1970's.
Scream Blacula Scream
Dir. Bob Kelljan, 1973, 96 min.
Blacula returns the following year with a Voodoo twist. To remove the vampire curse so that his soul can rest in peace back in Africa, the African prince seeks the help of a beautiful Voodoo High-Priestess [Pam Grier]. But, in the mean time, he continues his vampiric ways and 'makes' himself a few helpers. Taking place mostly in inner-city Los Angeles of the early 1970's.
