Duane Jones in Ganja & Hess

Despite its cult feel, this film has gotten ample critical acclaim and was even named one of the 10 best films of the 1970s by the Cannes Film Festival. The story centers on Dr. Hess, a brilliant archaeologist who turns vampire when he is stabbed with an ancient sword by his assistant.
