The Fear of the Year is Here!
Released in 1976 amidst the blaxploitation craze, Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde concerns an African-American scientist developing a formula to regenerate dying liver cells, but it has the unfortunate after-effect of turning him into an albino vampire with a mania for killing prostitutes. A tough police lieutenant investigating the murders discovers the existence of the dual-personality killer, and determines to bring him to justice.
Makeup FX by the late, great Stan Winston.
