Scream Blacula Scream (1973)

Scream Blacula Scream is a decent follow up to the one year previous film Blacula. Unfortunately it doesn't quite match up to the crazy-camp level of the first film but its still fun. It still stars William Marshal of course as Blacula who did one of my all time favorite Blaxploitation horror flicks, Abby. If you haven't seen that one its a must. Scream Blacula Scream also brings in Pam Grier the queen of Blaxploitation films but unfortunately shes kinda a wimp in this one. Were all so used to Pam being the bad-ass Coffy colored Foxy bitch that will kick your ass and fill your whole crew full of lead but in this one she is under Blacula's spell and she follows his orders and tries to perform an exorcism on him to release the "demonic creature" that controls him. See even Blacula himself is a bit of a sensitive bitch in the sequel. Yeah sure he kicks the shit out of the local pimps and delivers great lines such as "You have made slaves out of your black sisters, and your still a slave" Theres also all this crazy voodoo crap going on with Blacula voodoo dolls and what not. The climax of this film is about as slow as the end of Zombi. The vampires just stand there as the brotha's and sista's run around with stakes and other silly vampire movie paraphernalia. Definitely worth a watch but the original and Abby are Mr. Marshalls finest.
