Drum was born to white prostitute Marianna, who raises him with her black lesbian lover Rachel. He grows up to be a fighter and is often forced to bare-knuckle-box other slaves for the entertainment of the owners, including gay Frenchman Bernard. Bernard wants to sleep with Drum and vows revenge against him when he rejects him. Drum and his friend Blaise are eventually sold to plantation owner Hammond and taken to his plantation to work. Hammond also purchases Regine and brings her to the plantation as his own personal bedwench, but Hammond's fiancée Augusta is jealous and has other plans for her. Hammond's daughter Sophie wants to sleep with Drum, but he won't for fear of being killed. Sophie also attempts to sleep with Blaise; after he rejects her, she tells her father that he raped her. It's a lie, but Hammond puts Blaise in chains and decides to have him castrated for the alleged rape. In fact, the best way to castrate a slave is a conversation topic at the dinner party that has ...
The movie takes place around fifteen years after the events of the film's precursor Mandingo (1975). See more »
Actually internally, within the US, the slave trade was still legal. It was the Atlantic Slave trade that was outlawed in 1808. Internal slave trading existing up until the Civil War. See more »
Must you persist in being a vulgarian, Mr. Maxwell?
Miss Augusta, you just gotta get used to the idea that nigger fornicatin' is what Falconhurst is all about! If my niggers stop fornicatin', we stop eatin'!
Since the conversation has descended to this level, I feel I can voice my feelins' concernin' your beddin' with Regine every night.
Well, I don't do it every night. It's bad for my liver.
I don't think you should do it at all!
Now, Miss Augusta, you ain't gonna start meddlin' around in my ...

Hard to find anymore - Not for sale anywhere either.
I got a copy of it from one of those "avant garde" type video shops that pride themselves in having the hard to find stuff.
You can see this movie without having seen the pre-quel,"Mandingo" and not lose much understanding, since they make almost no references to what happened in the first movie. In fact, the plantation owner's white daughter was not in the first movie, so it really doesn't follow at all (she was in the novel "Mandingo"). Those who thought Mandingo was trashy will really be howling when they see this one....Warren Oates and the woman playing his daughter play for laughs in the middle part of the movie...(that actress went on to make X-rated movies and then dropped out of acting altogether by the mid 80s). John Colicos plays an evil homosexual....I like the overdone white trash talk though (" OH PAW! You ain't gonna marry that uppity bitch!) Great camp. Ken Norton acts like a mannequin most of the movie.....(" He might kill Blaize...or even worse, castrate him" - said with a totally expressionless face). And the dinner conversation is hilarious. ("Son I gonna give you Regine. How long you figger it take you to knock her up?). (" Miss Augusta, you jes got to get used to the fack that Falconhurst is all about n****r fornicatin'. If'n my n****rs stop fornicatin', we stops eatin'.)
Regine: You likes big titties, don't you Mistah Maxwell?
Hammond: Oh you knows I likes big titties.
Regine: Well Miss Augusta, she got BIIG titties.
And I repeat - this is supposed to be a serious movie.
The movie is in that "so bad it's good" category. Check it out, if you have a hankerin' for that genre.
