Seeing this movie makes me wish Pam Grier would raise the King of Cartoons (a.k.a. William Marshall) from death to suck Tyler Perrys blood. Scream Blacula Scream sports a flawless performance from the King of Cartoons as Blaculaa bloodsucker icon to stand alongside Lugosi, Lee and Gary Oldman. While watching the King of Cartoons convincingly cripple his victims with a mere nostril flare, I recall stories of Oldman demanding untold freakish prosthesis. All the King needs is a cape. Black on the outside. Red inside. When he raises his arms he turns into a bat. Like real actual vampires do. True Blood can suck it this Halloween weekend, cause Pam Griers voodoo style is both trick and treat.
