Blaxploitation Classics Make Their Blu-ray Debuts March 3rd, 2015 in a Scream Factory Double Feature


BLACULA and SCREAM, BLACULA, SCREAM

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 the riveting Blaxploitation classics Blacula and Scream, Blacula, Scream. Available on March 3rd, 2015 for the first time on Blu-ray, the double feature release also includes features a brand-new audio commentary track by author/film historian/filmmaker David F. Walker and a new interview with actor Richard Lawson (Scream, Blacula, Scream). Fans can pre-order their copies by visiting ShoutFactory.com

Set in 1780, Blacula is the tale of African Prince Mamuwalde (Marshall), who 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!

Blacula lives! This scintillating sequel, Scream, Blacula, Scream, pits voodoo power against vampire fury! Willis Daniels (Richard Lawson), the son of a late high priestess, seeks revenge on the cultists who have chosen his foster sister Lisa (Pam Grier) as their new leader. Hoping to curse Lisa, Willis unwittingly resurrects Blacula's earthly remains – and unleashes the Prince of Darkness and his freaked-out army of the undead!
