Blackenstein (1975) (711 words)
The film is the story set up about Eddie becoming a "Blackenstein" monster and then him stalking around town as slow as a turtle (with noone noticing him) until he actually strikes.
The highlight acting performance in the film for me, was when the crazy loudmouthed hospital nurse (Bob Brophy) actually tries to inject some kind of wacky emotional drama with his story about how he got rejected from joining the Army because of his "heart murmur".
Blackenstein is probably one of the worst films in the Blaxploitation genre.
