*Featuring a prerecorded Q&A with William Crain & introduction from Guillermo del Toro*

William Marshall and director William Crain (Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde) put a fresh spin on the vampire legend in the “funkadelic, fangadelic” Blaxploitation horror of Blacula! Marshall stars as Prince Mamuwalde, African royalty who seeks Count Dracula’s help in ending the slave trade, only to be transformed into a vampire by the evil count.  Nearly two centuries later, 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!” Blacula is followed by the return of human-vampire hybrid Blade, played with devil-may-care, fuck you attitude by Wesley Snipes. In Guillermo del Toro’s Blade II, Blade finds himself in a fierce battle against a group of mutant vampires that Roger Ebert called, “a really rather brilliant vomitorium of viscera, a comic book with dreams of becoming a textbook for mad surgeons."
