Editorial Reviews

Dr. Henry Pryde (Bernie Casey) is a noteworthy scientist who is working on an experimental remedy for liver damage. Along with his colleague, Dr. Billie Worth (Rosalind Cash), he perfects a serum that has the potential to reverse damaged liver tissue. Pryde also donates his services as a medical practitioner to a free clinic in the Watts projects. Pryde begins a series of unorthodox experiments to test his serum, and uses the serum on himself. The results are disastrous: he transforms into a hulking white-skinned hooker-murdering lunatic.

Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde is a film directed by William Crain (Blacula). Bernie Casey stars as Dr. Black, a well meaning Scientist and clinic doctor who's researching a new serum. Unfortunately, it has some nasty side effects when he tests it on some og his patients. Instead of doing more testing, Dr. Black tries it on himself and becomes a mean and irritable white monster who detests the crime in the slums of Watts. Whenever he turns into the monster, Dr. Black lays waste to the local pimps and hoes.
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.

While devoting all his time and energy towards an experimental serum for liver damage patients, prominent scientist Dr. Henry Pryde (Bernie Casey) stumbles across the serums real secret. It seems that his special serum has the ability to reverse the effects of liver damage in patients and genetically mutate anything it's tested on. The problem for Dr. Pryde is that he needs a living human subject to test his serum on, so he begins a series of unorthodox experiments on himself to test the serum. Soon after injecting himself, Dr. Pryde experiences the serums devastating side effects as he turns into an albino zombie and goes on a killing spree. Now the Pimps, Hookers and Johns in the Watts ghetto of L.A. have something to really fear. Welcome to Dr. Black, Mr.Hyde aka The Watts Monster.

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.

Movies have changed a lot since this film was made, and it is obviously trying to capitalize on the success of Blacula, but that doesn't mean that it's all bad. It's not the best blaxploitation horror film, but it at least it is fun to watch. There is an undercurrent about the ideas of duality that may or may not be intentional. The theme of the movie really highlights these dynamics of African American life at the time.
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

The movie itself is entertaining. I am a fan of the Blaxploitation horror films of the 70's. My problem with this release is that it being a 35th Anniversary release, where are the special features? If you are going to put out a dvd and put a heading on it that it's a "big" 35th Anniversary release, there at least should be some interviews or "making of docs." with it. Movie gets four stars. Lack of extras knocks it down one.

The delivery time for this movie was "ridiculous", when it finally showed up, it appeared to be new packaging, just as advertized, but the disc was not secured inside the case, and had been moving around loosely in the case. the disc was pretty scratched up, i was amazed that it actually played all the way through w/o skipping. Also, before receiving the movie, the price had been lowered over $2 (disappointing to say the least). I feel as though, I shouyld be compensated for the wait and creditied the difference of what I paid.

This was a great addition to my collection. It was one of the better blaxploytation movies of that era. It has a mix of drama,horror and comedy and that's what make it a good movie.
