When Willis (Richard Lawson) feels himself cheated out of becoming the Papa Luah of his community by his local voodoo cult & especially voodoowitch extraordinaire Lisa (Pam Grier), he decies to take desperate measures & revive Blacula (William Marshall) for revenge - which proves to be not such a good idea since Blacula is a vampire, & vampires do get a little grumpy in the mornign & have the tendency to take it out on those who have woken them up ... & so Blacula does, sucking Willis' blood.

Willis takes being turned into a vampire rather lightly though, but he is a little miffed about not being able to see his reflection no more ...

Blacula soon attends a party held by Lisa's boyfriend Justin (Don Mitchell) - an ex-cop who is now an immesnsely rich collector of African art - & soon gains both their trust by being an espert on African art himself ... however that doesn't keep him from secretly killing one of their partyguests, Gloria (Janee Michelle), when he gets a tad hungry. Later, when on the way home, he passes through the seeider parts of town, & 2 pimps (Bob Minor, Al Jones) want to hold him up, so he sucks them dry, too.

Sheriff Dunlop (Michael Conrad), an old friend of Justin's, is quick to make a connection between these killings, but fails to connect them all to vampirism, instead blames it all on voodoo & tries to pin it on Lisa - not successfully though. But he asks Justin to help him in the investigations, & hew soon comes up with vampires - much to the amusement of everyone else ... at first.

Lisa meanwhile is asked to sit by Gloria's coffin, but when she does so ... Gloria rises & tries to get her fangs into Lisa's throat - but then Blacula appears, chasing Gloria off & confessing to Lisa that he desperately needs her.

But why, you may ask, would a vampire need a voodoo priestess ?

He wants to be released of his curse to be human again ... & Lisa agrees to help him. But when they are at the ceremony to exorcise Blacula from his curse, Justin, the Sheriff & his cops - all of whom Justin has finally convinced of the existence of vampires - show up, stakes in hand, destroy all of Blacula's vampire brood & interrupt the exorcism before it is completed.

In anger & despair, Blacula turns into exactly the monster he wanted to rid himself of, furiously striking at anything that moves ... & in the end, Lisa, who promised to save him, kills him.

 

While Blacula fell somewhat short of fullfilling our worst expectations, its sequel delivers in full swing, presenting a suave centuries old vampire meeting jive-talking youngsters in garishly coloured flare shirts, having inane dialogue lines ("I don't mind being a vampire & all that. But never being able to see my face again ... Man !", "Where did you get those teeth ? Take this crap out of your mouth !"), displaying the typical 70's-blaxploitation brand of cool, all played to a soundtrack mix of urban funk & African drumming. This all makes the film rather void of any horror elements as such - but it also makes it very funny.
