Scream Blacula Scream (1973) - TCM On Demand w/ William Marshall, Don Mitchell, Pam Greer and Michael Conrad What else should one watch after watching Blacula (1972)? And it is a worthwhile sequel even though Mamuwalde's raison d'être is lessened here. Considering his actions at the end of the original, why didn't he immediately repeat those actions at the onset of this one? Outside of the fact that that would have made for a very short sequel!
Blacula (1972) - TCM On Demand w/ William Marshall, Vonetta McGee, Denise Nicholas, Thalmus Rasulala, Gordon Pinsent, Charles Macaulay and Elisha Cook, Jr. Considering Hollywood's predilection for remakes and reboots of more recent horror movies (Halloween in 2007, Friday The 13th in 2009, A Nightmare On Elm Street in 2010, etc.), I am surprised that remakes of this and other horror movies from the early 1970s have yet to occur. Granted, Blacula would require multiple revisions to make it contemporary for audiences of the late 2010s (As an obvious example, its treatment of homosexuality is very uncomfortable to watch and wouldn't be repeated today.). And it is quite possible that that title itself would trigger a negative backlash. But it is a recognizable title and the movie's basic storyline is still very viable. Of course, if they remade this one, who could fill Mr. Marshall's shoes as Mamuwalde? He'd be a tough act to follow.
