Blacula Reviews

June 5, 2016
Shakespeare thespian William Marshall has the title role, and excels in it.

The placement of an old-fashioned Dracula in a modern black neighborhood is a great idea, but amateurish production leaves Marshall stranded in the film.

It's redeemed somewhat by a cool soul soundtrack and a lead performance by the classically-trained Marshall, who displays a reverence for his iconic role that the filmmakers could have heeded.

The film remains a lifeless reworking of heroes versus vampires with soul music and a couple of good gags.

Anybody who goes to a vampire movie expecting sense is in serious trouble, and Blacula offers less sense than most.

[T]his classic example of blaxploitation does invoke the C-word, but not before 'camp-eee!' actually crossed your mind, which is while you're putting the DVD in the player.
