See this film: Blacula at the Coolidge

Every now and then, two trashy genres collide and something wonderful happens. As when blaxsploitation met grindhouse horror and gave rise to William Crain's Blacula (1972). An African prince (William Marshall) visits Count Dracula to get him to lay off the slave trade. Our hero gets bitten for his troubles and is buried in a coffin. A couple of centuries later, he finds himself in an LA bursting with bell-bottoms, bad hairstyles, fluttery antiques dealers, and soul music. And lots of pretty necks to bite. It screens at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | March 25-26 @ midnight | $9 | 617.734.2500 or coolidge.org
