If you’re trying to be the king of voodoo, don’t bring the bones of Prince Mamuwalde back to life. Maybe voodoo queen Mama Loa knew what she was doing when she chose Lisa Fortier (Pam Grier) as her successor instead of her son Willis (Richard Lawson, Poltergeist).
Sadly, this movie has murky lighting, bad direction and a dumb story, but no matter what, William H. Marshall gives Blacula a dignity beyond this movie and Pam Grier is, well, Pam Grier. So if we just go with the magical power of this movie’s two main actors, it’s a success in spite of itself.
That said, I fully do not believe in the ending that has Lisa get upset when she sees Blacula take out some policemen.
The Medveds claimed that this was the Worst Blaxploitation Movie of All Time. Come on. In a perfect world, we also would have seen Taste the Blood of Blacula, Blacula On Sugar Hill and Blacula Sunday.
You can watch this on Tubi.
