In this African American art-exploitation classic that was remade by Spike Lee in 2014 as Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, a prominent black archaeologist turns into a vampire after he is stabbed with a ceremonial dagger from an ancient, bloodthirsty African civilization. Duane Jones (Night of the Living Dead) stars. “[A] landmark 1973 indie that used vampirism as an ingenious metaphor for black assimilation, white cultural imperialism and the hypocrisies of organized religion.” –Scott Foundas.View more
