Film version of Melvin Van Peebles' Broadway musical. A pair of
devil-bats take human form and crash a Harlem house party in an
attempt to break it up. But somehow, their attempts to ruin the
party fail.
Melvin Van Peebles' first film after his groundbreaking blaxploitation
effort Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song was this photographed version
of his Broadway musical Don't Play Us Cheap, in which a pair of Satan's
helpers, in order to earn their horns, are dispatched to Harlem to
crash into (and break up) a wild party.
