William H. Marshall in Blacula

An African prince who reaches Los Angeles two centuries after his death by way of sealed coffin, Blacula embarks on a killing spree in an attempt to be reunited with his long-dead wife in this Blaxploitation classic. Realizing it's not meant to be, Blacula commits suicide by sunbathing in the Southern Cali heat.
