Bonus Content ForScream Factory’s Blu-ray Double Feature: Blacula / Scream, Blacula, Scream Revealed

blacula

On March 3rd, Scream Factory will release a Blu-ray Double Feature, featuring Blacula, and Scream, Blacula, Scream. These aren’t the Eighties Slashers that a lot of younger Scream Factory fans have gotten used to, but there is a sizeable chunk of their fanbase that are really excited about this release. It has been so long since the last time I watched Blacula, that I can’t even remember how I felt about the film itself. I’m excited to sit down and check it out again. Today, Scream Factory sent out a press release, revealing the extras that will be available on the disc. It doesn’t sound like a ton of stuff, but Scream have a tendency to undersell the bonus content on their discs. It sounds like some new interviews and commentaries will be the extent of the extras. Check out the press release below for the full details, and click here to pre-order the disc on Amazon for $17.99!

Blaxploitation Classics Make Their Blu-ray Debuts

March 3rd, 2015 in a Scream Factory Double Feature

The eternally cool William Marshall puts a fresh spin on the age-old legend of the vampire, condemned to wander the Earth with an insatiable lust for blood in the riveting Blaxploitation classics Blacula and Scream, Blacula, Scream. Available on March 3rd, 2015 for the first time on Blu-ray, the double feature release also includes features a brand-new audio commentary track by author/film historian/filmmaker David F. Walker and a new interview with actor Richard Lawson (Scream, Blacula, Scream). Fans can pre-order their copies by visiting ShoutFactory.com

Set in 1780, Blacula is the tale of African Prince Mamuwalde (Marshall), who pays a visit to Count Dracula in Transylvania, seeking his support in ending slave trade. Instead, the evil count curses his noble guest and transforms him into a vampire! Released from his coffin nearly two centuries later by a pair of luckless interior decorators, Mamuwalde emerges as “Blacula,” one strange dude strollin’ the streets of L.A. on a nightly quest for human blood!
Blacula lives! This scintillating sequel, Scream, Blacula, Scream, pits voodoo power against vampire fury! Willis Daniels (Richard Lawson), the son of a late high priestess, seeks revenge on the cultists who have chosen his foster sister Lisa (Pam Grier) as their new leader. Hoping to curse Lisa, Willis unwittingly resurrects Blacula’s earthly remains – and unleashes the Prince of Darkness and his freaked-out army of the undead!
