Terror Tuesdays: Blacula


The Lyric is proud to present Terror Tuesdays in October. 

Terror Tuesdays will feature three films; the documentary ‘Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror’, ‘Blacula’ directed by William Crain, and ‘Us’ directed by Jordan Peele. These three films have been specifically chosen in order to create a learning experience about African Americans in horror films, while also celebrating the genre of horror in relation to the Halloween holiday. The Lyric was also well known for playing horror films in the late 50s and early 60s and this film series is a way to honor its past. 

Blacula
During a visit to Transylvania, an African prince (William Marshall) gets turned into a vampire by Count Dracula (Charles McCauley). Sealed in a coffin for several lifetimes, "Blacula" reawakens in 1970s Los Angeles. Leaving a trail of bloodless victims in his wake, he pursues Lina (Vonetta McGee), a woman who bears a striking resemblance to his dead wife. Meanwhile, Dr. Gordon Thomas (Thalmus Rasulala) and top cop Lt. Peters (Gordon Pinsent) are hot on the bloodsucker's trail.
