Prince Mamuwalde AKA Blacula for Rippers: AD 1970

In 1780 European educated African Prince Mamuwalde returned to Europe, hoping to speak to the European heads of state as equals to end the slave trade that has been robbing his country of its citizens.

He met with resounding failure, but no failure will compare to what waits for him and his lovely wife Luva when they go to Transylvania and meet with ruling lord, Count Dracula.

Dracula, insulted by the African prince bit him and cursed him with immortality. He trapped the newly undead prince in a coffin and then sealed the coffin and Luva in a room. Mamuwalde was forced to listen as Luva died of starvation and he remained trapped; his bloodlust and revenge starved for nearly 200 years.

Dracula's castle, and its lands fell into decay, but in 1972, two enterprising interior designers (maybe hoping to make a few bucks on the Hammer Films craze) stole several of Dracula's possessions, including an ornately designed coffin. Back in Los Angeles the designers fatally discovered that their coffin is not empty at all and Mamuwalde, aka "Blacula" is loose on the streets.
