Part of Film 2019 series NYC Horror
Directed by Bill Gunn | 1973

With Gunn, Duane Jones, Marlene Clark

Vampire and Afrocentric mythologies collide in Bill Gunn’s visionary avant-horror freakout. After he’s stabbed with an ancient African dagger, a Hudson Valley anthropologist develops an insatiable thirst for blood—and soon welcomes an imperious woman into his vampiric coven. Mis-marketed as a blaxploitation shocker during its brief release run, Ganja & Hess has reemerged as a heady and hallucinatory exploration of sex, religion, and black cultural identity.
