Can anyone stop his reign of terror? Rosalind Cash and Ji-Tu Cumbuka co-star,
The version I saw was the 35th anniversary digitally restored print. Compared to the other prints I have seen it looks real good but since it was shot on low grade film you can only do so much with the picture quality. I enjoyed this movie because it's cheesy, hokey and entertaining. This is a b-movie so keep this in mind when you're watching it. Bernie Casey is creepy as the monster but the star of the show is Ji-Tu Cumbuka as the no nonsense Lt. Jackson. Not only does he have the best lines, but it's one of a few times he plays a good guy. If you enjoy "blackspolitation" films or a fan of Blacula then you'll want to watch one.
I'm really disappointed in the picture and sound quality of this 35th Anniversary DVD release from VCI entertainment. I've bought a number of their DVD's in the past and I can definitely say this DVD isn't their best effort. The 1.78:1 Anamorphic Widescreen picture contains lines and minor speckling about half way through the film. The picture seems washed out and the colors are dull. The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound doesn't get much better on this DVD release either. The sound is plagued with noticeable crackling throughout. I also noticed a drop in volume here and there as well. It's as if the DVD video transfer came directly from a VHS tape. Disc packaging artwork and disc artwork is well done.
Despite all the problems with the picture and sound quality which I`d rate about 6/10, this film is still watchable. I think fans of low budget B-movies and 70's Blaxploitation films will still get a kick out of Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde.Read more ›
If you are a collector, this is definitely something you are going to want for your collection, but if you are looking for a horror experience, you may be disappointed

Simply a black version from the original monster favorite with Bernie Casey and Rosalind Cash. The transfer is crisp and there are a few trailers from other blaxploitation films.Published 22 months ago by Richard C. Jones
