Seeing as how this movie was released in 1974 and was a weird horror movie featuring black people, I thought this would be a Blaxploitation film. I guess it wouldn't technically be my first Blaxploitation film, as I also saw "Django Unchained" which could be considered a modern take on the genre. I've looked up the movie and have not seen any mention of this being a film of that genre. Too bad, as it would have been nice to see a movie made at that time. What makes this movie so weird is that it's about, well Dracula's wife awakening from slumber only to find out she accidentally became a black woman from a blood transfusion. It's about as dumb as it sounds. The ending is also weird, as it shows Dracula deciding not to change his wife, but instead becoming black himself. This movie was so dumb and it even shows Dracula getting away with everything. Apart from that, the special effects are terrible and the acting is hokey. I guess the black actors in this movie weren't offended to be in it. Well, they probably did it for the money. We get the usual scenarios of a Halloween party for Dracula to blend in with. I just had no clue what this movie was trying to tell me. It just left a weird taste in my mouth and I just saw thirty minutes of footage from "The Day The Clown Cried"! It's best to skip this one as it's too strange to care about. This was apparently supposed to be a comedy but I found no laughs. It was just awkward. *1/2
