An 18th century African statesman is transformed into a vampire, cursed with the name Blacula, and entombed in Dracula's Castle after he fails to convince the Count to support him in his cause to end the slave trade. Two hundred years later, a pair of interior decorators transport his coffin to L.A. where he awakes with an unquenchable thirst for human blood. As Blacula pursues a woman who resembles his long dead wife, her brother-in-law, a pathologist, investigates the string of carnage that follows in the vampire's wake.Written by

While the film was in its production stages, William Marshall worked with the producers to make sure his character had some dignity. His character's name was changed from Andrew Brown to Mamuwalde and received a background story about his being an African prince who had been turned into a vampire. See more »
The film was set in Los Angeles, but a map of Staten Island (New York City) is hanging on the wall in the police station during a close-up shot of the Doctor meeting with the police. See more »

When originally released theatrically in the UK, the BBFC made cuts to secure an 'X' rating. All cuts were waived in 1998 when the film was granted an '15' certificate for home video. See more »
People fail to realize that with AIP pictures like Slaughter, Black Ceasar, and so on. That they continue from where the original left off at as with Blacula. Mamawalde is bitten by Dracula and is suppose to be nailed inside a casket forever, and now 400 years later the vampire returns and to wreak havoc on the streets of LA. Now enters Tina someone who resembles his deceased wife, and now he wants Tina forever and tries to get her to go with him. After she takes a bullet meant for him. He loses her forever and he takes his own life. William Marshall is one of the greatest figures in African-American film. Vonetta Mc Gee is alright along with all of the other cast members. In the second one/w Pam Grier Scream Blacula Scream he comes back to life through Voodoo and he tries to get rid of the demon that possesses him. I like it at the end when Don Mitchell(of Ironside fame) calls him Mamawalde. Then he realize that he won't get rid of that demon, so he accepts who he is Blacula! GOOD STUFF!
