Goofs

Blacula makes a serious tactical error by attempting to remove his vampiric spirit at Willis' house-if he were successful, he would become a human trapped in a house full of vampires-he should have let Lisa take him to a place of her choosing for the exorcism. 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.

It's Better Than You Think!
4 April 2002 | by teuthisSee all my reviews

I'm a Dracula fan and I really got a kick out of this film. True, if you try to perceive it as merely serious horror, then you might be disappointed. But if you view it as a Dracula Genre-Blackxploitation Meets Hammer Films-1970's Culture Shock Satire, then it's a lot of fun! Sure, I'll watch anything with Pam Grier in it; and I have! I love William Marshall's deep-voiced, precisely-dictioned intonations too. How many actors can walk into a 1970's black nightclub in a tux and cape,sans "afro" and carry it off with his effortless aplomb? But this film has more than humor. It was fairly well thought out and is entertaining escapism. It also has all the usual funny little peccadillos of the low budget film genre. These are numerous and often hilarious. I watch it almost every time I see it on cable. [Of course I also loved Dr. Black and Mr. Hyde, with Bernie Casey.] For my money, any Dracula is good Dracula... or is that Blackula?
