About

** New restoration! **

A blood-soaked masterpiece. One of the most profound, surreal, and horrifying love stories ever made.” – Complex

Duane Jones (Night of the Living Dead) and Marlene Clark star in this enduring cult classic of both horror and independent black filmmaking, a vampire love story that begins when an anthropologist is stabbed with the enchanted dagger of an ancient African nation that leaves him blessed with immortality… and cursed with an unquenchable thirst for blood. Newly restored, with previously unseen footage, playwright, novelist, actor and screenwriter Bill Gunn’s revolutionary film is a stylized and utterly original exploration of sex, religion, and African American identity that doesn’t skimp on blood and genre thrills.

The Vampiric Vixen herself, Isabella Price, will present a “biting” pre-film burlesque floor show, and you too can fill up on blood, because everyone in attendance gets a free pair of vampire teeth!
