Ok, it’s no secret that I’m a seventies film fan. In particular, I love seventies black cinema. There were a lot of great films that came out, however, I believe the attention was drawn more to the action oriented films. Shaft, Superfly, Three the Hard Way, and Black Belt Jones are just a few examples of what I’m talking about. What about good old fashioned horror flicks? There were no shortage of black films in the seventies that fit this bill. With this in mind, I have included a couple trailers/clips to wet your appetite! Enjoy these and look for some familiar stars!
The House on Skull Mountain(1974)(look for Lionel from “The Jeffersons”)
Abby(1974)(Starring William Marshall from “Blacula”)
Dr. Black and Mr. Hyde(1976)(Starring Bernie Casey)(brief nudity in trailer)
