Disappointing blaxsploitation version of the classic tale.
15 November 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Blacksploitation classic tells the story of Dr. Henry Pryde (Bernie Casey) who is working tirelessly to find a cure for liver disease. He develops a serum that shows potential but, he can't perfect it without human experimentation. After a failed test on a dying woman, Henry decides to test the serum on himself. The result transforms the valiant doctor into a super strong, violent tempered… white man. Directed by Blacula's William Crain, this 70s horror treats it's story with respect despite how silly it is and Crain, as with Blacula, gets good performances out of his cast that also includes Rosalind Cash (The Omega Man) and Marie O'Henry as Pryde's love interest, a local hooker named Linda. Sadly, Larry LeBron's script from an idea by Lawrence Woolner doesn't nearly make as much use of the classic story it's based on as did Blacula, nor is Crain able to give this film the Gothic flavor and style he did with that film. It's pretty much a generic monster movie with Mr. Hyde stalking and killing Linda's fellow hookers and their pimps and the police trying to find and stop the killer. The obvious blaxploitation elements are present but, seem a bit forced here as opposed to Blacula where they were just part of the characters and their life at that point in time. Still the film does have that 70s nostalgia and is worth a look for those interested in the blaxploitation era of filmmaking. Also noteworthy as, the Mr. Hyde make-up effects on Bernie Casey are by the legendary Stan Winston.
