Dr. Black and Mr. White Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Director [[Performer~P86157~William Crain~williamcrain]]'s entertaining follow-up to [[Feature~V5991~Blacula~blacula]] stars [[Performer~P11553~Bernie Casey~berniecasey]] (formerly of the L.A. Rams) as Dr. Henry Pride, a prominent black physician who partakes of an experimental formula for the treatment of liver disease -- which turns out to be a close chemical cousin to Dr. Jeykll's notorious concoction. The drug transforms Pride into a homicidal white-skinned predator who goes out on murderous nocturnal rampages, mainly targeting prostitutes on the street corners of the Watts district; dangerously imposing cop Ji-Tu Cumbuka investigates. Known also as The Watts Monster and [[Feature~V125158~Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde~doctordracula]], this film contains little of [[Feature~V5991~Blacula~blacula]]'s Hammer-inspired atmosphere, choosing to adopt a standard low-budget urban-action style (with dialogue to match) until the [[Feature~V27392~King Kong~kingkong]]-derived climax. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
