Blacula / Scream, Blacula, Scream Double Feature
I’ve never really dived head-on into the genre, but if there were a “King of Blaxploitation Films” it would have to be Blacula. Its right-hand man would have to be Scream, Blacula, Scream. I’ve never witnessed anything so politically incorrect by today’s standards, yet so awkwardly fun, in my entire life. Somehow, they’re also fueled with social and racial commentary that speaks for the African American of the 1970s. Blacula’s plight was put upon him by the evil white Dracula. By the second film, all he wants is to be free from his bloodlust. However, he always strives to be a champion of his race.
