Decades of Horror 1970s
Episode 15  — Scream Blacula Scream (1973)

The director of Count Yorga, Vampire and The Return of Count Yorga, Bob Kelljan , resurrects Dracula’ Soul Brother for Scream, Blacula, Scream. “The Black Prince of Shadows Stalks the Earth Again!” promises the tag line while The Black Saint argues the title suggests a far different film. Doc defends the movie enjoying the inclusion of voodoo and more vampirism while the Black Saint insists  it is as slow as molasses. Regardless William Marshall owns the roles and keeps the film alive with another wonderful performance.

Some fun dialog:
Pimp, “Your bread, man, all of it! Or are we gonna have to become anti-social and kick your ass?”
Blacula, “I’m sorry, I don’t have any ‘bread’ on me, and as for ‘kicking my ass’ I’d strongly suggest you give it careful consideration before trying”

    1. Sweet. Robert Kelljcheain, eh? hmmm. I like that. Surely, I would butcher the pronunciation. D’oh.

      I am glad you enjoyed the podcast. Revisiting these two films was a blast. So much fun! Shhh. Don’t tell the Black Saint – I still prefer Scream, Blacula, Scream

      It is time to tackle Count Yorga, Vampire and The Return of Count Yorga. You think? 🙂

      Thanks for listening
