Lord Shango [a.k.a. The Color of Love] (1975)


In this atmospheric blaxploitation classic, a wrong Christian mother turns away from her faith to a more ancient religion and summons a tribal priest to avenge her teenage daughter. Rarely seen since its original release, this striking blend of folklore, African traditions, and supernatural menace stars cult icon Marlene Clark (Night Of The Cobra Woman, Ganja and Hess) and Lawrence Cook (The Spook Who Sat By The Door, Trouble Man).
