Ganja and Hess ★½ Blood Couple; Black Vampire; Double Possession; Black Out: The Moment of Terror; Black Evil 1973 (R)

Jones plays a professor of African studies who is turned into a vampire by another vampire. He then marries the villain's ex-wife, played by Clark, a veteran of Russ Meyer films. Not much of a story but the acting is actually quite good and there are some creepy moments thanks mainly to an interesting score. 110m/C VHS, DVD .
