Zombies of Sugar Hill
While Sugar Hill is not as good as Blacula, I certainly found it entertaining. Don Pedro Colley as voodoo god Baron Sameldi really makes this a fun film in my opinion. He always turns up in some sort of disguise at the various murders carried out by his zombie minions. The film is done along the lines of another AIP film Dr. Phibes Rises Again, in that the bad guys are dispatched in interesting and sometimes intentionally humorous ways.
Marki Bey as Sugar Hill is no Pam Grier as far as acting goes, but she's easy on the eyes and her character when not joining the walking dead in their killing sprees, gets into a cat fight with the jealous moll of the mob boss and does a photo shoot with other cute girls in bikinis.
Sugar Hill does contain a slight amount of gore, however the zombie make up for this is not the rotting flesh type. The same zombies are used in most scene and in close up shots they appear to have shiny buttons for eyes. That aside, this works if you consider that they are not so much reanimated corpses, but supernatural creatures conjured up through voodoo.
This may not be a film for everyone, but if you like the AIP 70's drive-in horror flicks and want to see some truly funky fashion statements as well as afros galore, accompanied by a soundtrack filled with wah pedal soul riffs, then this film is worth a look.
