Rating:
PG
Blacula is the 1972 horror blaxploitation classic which puts an edgy, funky spin on the vampire legend and the traditional Gothic tale of everyone's favorite vampire, directed by William Crain (Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde). The film tells the tale of how an African prince named Manuwalde (William Marshall) was turned into a vampire by Dracula himself nearly 200 years ago. Dracula curses Manuwalde into a lifetime eternity of blood lust as punishment for denying him his wife. Manuwalde is placed in a coffin, and is only discovered in the present day by two gay interior designers who happen to stumble upon the Transylvanian castle after they go antique hunting. The two are told by the castle's realtor that it was once occupied by Dracula, but he was slain by the famous Van Helsing and that the legend of 'vampyrism' is indeed, quite true. Sold, the two bring the coffin back to America with them. Once back, the two decide to crack open the coffin's padlock when one of them cuts themselves. As they turn their backs to tend to the wound, the coffin slowly opens and Blacula has risen!moreless
