Storyline

After a dying Voodoo queen chooses an adopted apprentice as her successor, her true heir is outraged. Seeking revenge, he buys the bones of Blacula the vampire off of a dealer, and uses voodoo to bring the vampire back to do his bidding. In turn, Blacula turns him into a vampire and makes him his slave. Meanwhile, a police officer with a large collection of African antiques and an interest in the occult investigates the murders caused by Blacula and his vampire horde. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Blacula was imprisoned in a coffin in the 1770s and only released in the previous film, meaning that between the two films he has been active in the modern world for only about a week. Yet in this film he plays Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (composed 1801) on the piano, a song he is unlikely to have heard, much less learned to play. See more »

Quotes

Pimp: Your bread, man, all of it! Or are we gonna have to become anti-social and kick your ass?
Mamuwalde: I'm sorry, I don't have any 'bread' on me, and as for 'kicking my ass' I'd strongly suggest you give it careful consideration before trying.

IS NOT a waste of time ....
3 May 2003 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

On the contrary. Scream Blacula is the best of the two Blacula films. It has two of the scariest scenes in horror film history and some of the most ironic and funniest. William Marshall is an excellent actor and his regal portrayal of the cursed black prince. It was quite interesting to see Pam Grier play against type (at the time, at least) as a vulnerable female -- who happened to be a voodoo priestess. I was a kid when I saw this for the first time and the scene where William Marshall pounces on this unsuspecting fella on the stairwell still scares the hell out of me. I have often wondered why no one has done a remake of this film series, with the resurgence of black film making.

I would recommend this film and it's predecessor (Blacula) very highly.
