With the popularity of the genre, blaxploitation finds its horror side too. Seems as though horror has no particular race in mind. Brought back to the world of the living by means of a voodoo ceremony, the dread Blacula is loosed with insatiable bloodlust on the population of a small community in the Louisiana back country. This Dracula doesn't hang round a castle, he socializes big time. He goes to parties, he wears a black cape all the time. He speaks the King's English, very articulate but none of that Transylvania accent stuff. But at least he travels as a bat through the night and sleeps in a coffin during the day. This is taking liberties with Dracula beyond the pale. It is laughable. Blacula travels the city streets, passes up hookers. Sucks the blood out of criminals. If you are into creative Dracula themes, this one may be for you. Not my usual taste in films, but it's almost Halloween at the time of the writing.

It is stylish and dull at the same time. The ending is actually great but otherwise it just another Crime thriller.
