Critic Reviews:

Clearly made as a cheap cash in on the more successful Blacula, Blackenstein, despite its admittedly wonderful title fails to match its predecessor in terms plot, acting and execution.

As slow, lifeless and sloppily stitched together as its monster, this movie is a massive dud, undeserving of its goofy name.

Is Blackenstein an essential Blaxploitation film? Personally, I think they’re all part of a larger fabric that needs to be preserved. It’s not the greatest film (or even all that good), but it’s cheesy fun, and a testament to the love of the genre, brokered by a man who lived for horror. And died for it too.
