The Eureka Classics Collection sees the arrival of Blacula – the Complete Collection, the legacy of Dracula’s Soul Brother in a perfect midnight double bill featuring William Crain’s Blacula and Bob Kelljan’s Scream Blacula Scream starring Pam Grier (Jackie Brown).
The final Monday of October will also see the release in a Dual Format (Blu-ray and DVD) edition of Blacula – The Complete Collection starring Pam Grier, the 1972 American Blaxploitation horror film (Blacula) produced for American International Pictures which became one of the top grossing films of the year, inspiring a sequel (Scream Blacula Scream) and a small wave of Blaxploitation themed horror films. 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 the 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 decorators, Mamuwalde emerges as “Blacula,” one cool, dressed to kill, dude strollin’ the streets of L.A. on a nightly quest for human blood and fine women!
In Scream, Blacula, Scream Blacula lives, and only the legendary Pam Grier (Jackie Brown) has the power to deep-six his reign of terror. William Marshall returns as the noble African prince turned bloodthirsty fiend in this hair-raising sequel to the terrifying hit Blacula! This time, it’s voodoo power versus vampire fury when Willis (Richard Lawson), the son of the late high priestess, seeks revenge on the cultists who have chosen his foster sister Lisa (Grier) as their new leader. Hoping to curse Lisa, Willis unwittingly resurrects Blacula’s earthly remains and lets loose the Prince of Darkness and his freaked-out army of the undead!
