"...Here's an exploitation film that doesn't exploit..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Urban action and fatal attraction give rise to a groove from beyond the grave in this funkadelic, fangadelic Soul Cinema sensation! The eternally cool William Marshall puts a fresh spin on the age-old legend of the vampire, condemned to wander the Earth with an insatiable lust for blood.

In 1780, African Prince Mamuwalde (Marshall) pays a visit to Count Dracula in Transylvania, seeking his support in ending slave trade. Instead, the evil count curses his noble guest and transforms him into a vampire! Released from his coffin nearly two centuries later by a pair of luckless interior decorators, Mamuwalde emerges as "Blacula," one strange dude strollin' the streets of L.A. on a nightly quest for human blood!

Product Description:

Cultivated and articulate African Prince Mamuwalde is bitten by Count Dracula as is his destiny. He develops the requisite insatiable hunger for blood and must do all that he can to satisfy the craving. Two centuries later, the princely ghoul is unwittingly transported to modern day Los Angeles where bloodthirst is a way of life. Blaxploitation and the horror genre mingle in this creature feature that inspired the sequel SCREAM, BLACULA, SCREAM.
