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.

Better Than Made Out to Be
8 May 2015 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

After a dying Voodoo queen, Mama Loa, chooses an adopted apprentice, Lisa Fortier (Pam Grier) as her successor, her arrogant son and true heir, Willis, (Richard Lawson) is outraged. Seeking revenge, he buys the bones of Mamuwalde the vampire from the former shaman of the voodoo cult, and uses voodoo to resurrect the vampire to do his bidding.

This film seems to get a bad rap. In the first Blacula, there was an attempt to make the vampire more refined, more serious and a character who was not just a joke. Some say they did not take the same approach the second time around. Well, I don't agree with that. Having him be knowledgeable in African art seems pretty refined to me.

Maybe an army of vampires or a voodoo priestess is a little silly, but this is AIP we are talking about. The point is to have fun, and this movie is fun.
