Best and Worst movie about Dracula

Best and Worst movie about Dracula
Yareah Magazine

Dracula Movies: Dracula was character created by Bram Stoker about a count of Transylvania. Everybody knows it.

It wasn’t hard for us to decide the best movie, but it was a really hard work to choose the worst film.  There were many candidates to obtain the appreciate award, but we have chosen (included a porno film of 1972). We hope at least a smile. It’s free.

Blacula is a 1972 American horror film produced for American International Pictures. It was directed by William Crain and stars William Marshall in the title role about an 18th century African prince named Mamuwalde, who is both turned into a vampire and locked inside a coffin by Count Dracula after a party at the count’s castle in Transylvania that he attended with his wife Luva (Vonetta McGee). Two centuries later, the now-undead Mamuwalde rises from his coffin attacking various residents in modern day Los Angeles, the first two being the interior decorators who unknowingly release him after purchasing and bringing his coffin from Dracula’s castle in Transylvania. Mamuwalde later meets Tina (also played by Vonetta McGee), a woman he believes to be the reincarnation of his deceased wife Luva.

Blacula was released to mixed reviews in the United States, but was one of the top grossing films of the year. It was the first film to receive an award for Best Horror Film at the Saturn Awards. Blacula was followed by the sequel Scream, Blacula, Scream in 1973 and inspired a small wave of blaxploitation themed horror films.
