|This is a ridiculous suit but a great scene!|
The tricks and treats are still flowing here at the Cheeks Debelly mansion as Halloween is still going strong. Next up is a sequel to a film I did earlier in the month. Scream Blacula Scream also stars William H. Marshall as the title character. The film also stars Pam Grier, a mainstay of many blaxploitation films and features Richard Lawson in the first credited movie of his career. The basis of the film is that as a Voodoo Priestess dies she appoints Lisa (Grier) as her successor. This of course does not sit well with her son Willis (Lawson) who is her true heir.
Also starring is Don Mitchell as an ex-cop that knows a lot about African heritage and Janee Michelle as Lisa's friend Gloria. The director this time is Bob Kelijan of Count Yorga fame. The film is as cool as the first one but I don't recall the original having as many lulls in it. This one feels a little slower and at times it's nearly boring. About half a star less than the original so I give this a strong two and a half voodoo dolls out of five.
