Review: (There are Spoilers) Being what he feels short changed by his dying mom in not becoming the new leader, or Papaloa, of her Voodoo Cult in favor of his hated step-sister Lisa, Pam Grier, Voodoo practitioner Willis, Richard Lawson, flips out and swears revenge against Lisa and those who follow and support her. It’s turns out that Willis gets in touch with another dethrone Voodoo chieftain who fills him in on how to conjure up a Voodooo curse and have it do his bidding in doing Lisa harm and having him replace her as his late mothers cults new Voodoo chief. Getting a bag of bones and then sprinkling the blood of a white and purple pigeon, that he just sacrificed, on it together with what looks like baby powder the bones catch fire and disintegrate. Willis says a number of abracadabra on the bones and then poof, after Wills turned his back on them, up from the abyss there emerged the notorious and utterly evil Blacula, William Marshall. Blacula wastes no time in sticking his fangs in Willis’ neck not only turning him into a Vampire but making him, as well as a number of other people during the course of the movie, into his slave. Checking out the night life Blacula pops into this party that Lisa is throwing that has to do with 17th and 18th century African Art. Calling himself Mamuwalde Blacula is such a hit at the party, with his knowledge of the Dark Continent, that he’s invited back by a very impressed and in love with him Lisa. It’s that Blacula notices that Lisa is an expert in the art of Voodoo that he becomes turned on to her not sexually, despite her 38-22-36 vital statistics, but that he feels that she can free him from this curse that has been tormenting him for some 300 years; being a both member of the living dead and living on nothing but human blood. The movie takes off with Blacula turning into a Vampire Bat and flying into the moonlight and the red light district of L.A. Putting a couple of pimps who tried to mug him to sleep, together with one of Lisa’s party goers, by sucking their blood out the police are alerted that some psycho is on the loose and send out a dragnet to capture, dead or alive, him. Meanwhile Blacula has become infatuated with Lisa in his belief that she can actually cure him from the Vampire curse. This all doesn’t play that well with Lisa’s boyfriend Justin, Don Mitchill, who’s determined to keep Blacua from using Lisa for his own greedy and selfish purposes. Blacula gets down to business when he has Lisa make this Voodoo Doll of himself and together the two, especially Blacula, go into this orgasmic like chanting that causes the screen to steam up and almost catch fire. Just then when Blacula, what looks like, is about to experience some kind of emotional climax Justin and the police show up and this whole crazy plan of his falls flat on it’s back. Really pi**ed off at Justin and the entire LAPD for daring to interrupt his grand metamorphose from a walking dead man to an alive and normal human being Blacula goes completely nuts. An outraged Blacula, together with his band of walking dead Vampires, tears into the onrushing police as well as Justin whom he spears only when Lisa pleaded for his life. The ending has Blacula do a number on the LAPD and when he’s about to finish Justin off Lisa, who’s been screaming hysterically throughout the entire scene, sticks a wooden stake into the Voodoo Doll that she made of Blacula.Like the movie title says Blacula, after his Voodoo Doll is pierced, screams and screams sounding as if he was imitating the yodel that Johnny Weissmuler made famous in his many Tarzan movies. William Marshall undoubtedly is the glue that holds the movie “Scream Blacula Scream” together. Towering over everyone in the film, at six foot five inches, Marshall was as good as and effective a Dracula, or Blacula, as anyone who played the legendary Vampire in the past. Marshell’s acting was also notches above the caliber of acting that you would have expected in the usual 1970’s black-exploitation movies sounding and coming across like a black version of Gregory Peck.
