Blacula is a 1972 horror film written by Joan Torres and Raymond Koenig and directed by William Crain for American International Pictures.
In 1780, African Prince Mamuwalde (William Marshall) along with his wife, Luva (Vonetta McGee) pay a visit to Count Dracula in Transylvania. They are seeking support to end the slave trade. Instead, the evil count curses his noble guests and transforms Mamuwalde into a vampire, leaving Luva to die! Released from his coffin in L.A. nearly two centuries later by a pair of luckless interior decorators, Mamuwalde emerges as "Blacula," a man consumed by bloodlust. When he sees Tina he is convinced she is his Luva. How can he make her believe she is safe in his arms when he has to prowl the streets every night on a quest for human blood?
