Day 17

Movie: Scream Blacula Scream
Starring: Pam Grier, William Marshall
Genre: Horror, Xploitation,
Year: 1973
Format: online

Plot: Blacula has risen from his grave thanks to a voodoo ritual. After turning half a town into vampires, he discovers a Priestess who might have the power to cure him.

This is the sequel to Blacula  I'm not sure if it's a vampire movie that has voodoo {vodun} in it or a voodoo movie that has a few vampires in it?  It's almost like it had a split personality. 
Honestly not sure what to think of it other then for the genre -xploitation film- it was good.  I see where the comments twenty years later came from on Vampire in Brooklyn being a semi-remake.

The ending left a lot to be desired, as it is open with my guess that you are to both draw your own conclusions and they must have thought there would be another sequel.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Always have faith in the unknown even when it scares the life out of you.  You can never dismiss folklore and legends because everything has a grain of truth in it.
