March 3rd Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Blacula / Scream, Blacula, Scream Double Feature, Exterminators of the Year 3000

3 March 2015 11:11 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For the first week of March, the genre home entertainment releases are on the lighter side with Scream Factory reigning supreme as the champions of cult horror once again with two killer Blu-ray titles debuting Tuesday: Exterminators of the Year 3000 and the Blacula / Scream, Blacula, Scream double release.

Blacula / Scream, Blacula, Scream (Scream Factory, Blu-ray)

The eternally cool William Marshall puts a fresh spin on the age-old legend of the vampire, condemned to wander the Earth with an insatiable lust for blood in these riveting Blaxploitation classics.

In 1780, African Prince Mamuwalde (Marshall) pays a visit to Count Dracula in Transylvania, seeking his support in ending slave trade. Instead, the evil count curses his noble guest and transforms him into a vampire! Released from his coffin nearly two centuries later by a pair of luckless interior decorators, Mamuwalde emerges as "Blacula, ", one strange dude strollin’ the streets of L.A. »

It’s a great day for DVD/Bluray when it comes to horror (and another genre or two), and with Fright At Home, we like to highlight some of the titles that for one reason or another, we feel that we would like to give you fright fanatics a heads’ up on. This week sees multiple releases from Scream Factory, Lionsgate and Cinedigm, as well as others, but we’ve singled out some highlights to shine the proverbial flashlight on. Read on!

 

Blacula/Scream Blacula Scream (Dir. William Crane, Bob Kelljan)

Easily the standout release of the week, as far as I’m concerned, Scream Factory’s Blacula/Scream Blacula Scream double feature Bluray debut is a one-two punch of two of the coolest vampire movies around. Somewhat light on the supplemental end, but definitely worth picking up, you won’t find a vampire who takes less crap from his »

Da Sweet Blood of Jesus: Spike Lee Finds Originality in a Remake

27 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In 1973, the production company Kelly-Jordan Enterprises sought to fund a group of relatively inexpensive features, one being a blaxploitation vampire film in an attempt to reproduce the success of the previous year’s Blacula. When playwright Bill Gunn was initially pitched the idea, he balked, but later grew intrigued by the potential for using vampirism as a metaphor for addiction. Gunn’s film, Ganja & Hess, bore a uniquely elegiac dream structure, with its hypnotic images, arthouse sensibility, and cyclical music cues resembling something worlds away from William Marshall’s broadly comic take on Dracula. Concerned with themes of desire, self-destruction, and the tensions between cultural history and assimilation, Gunn created an image of black vampirism that refused to be a novelty or gimmick, manifested in a style of filmmaking that rejected token categorization. Baffled, the production company didn’t know what to do with Gunn’s film despite its positive reception at Cannes. Kelly-Jordan »
