Blaxploitation Meets Horror In Sugar Hill, Plus An Award

Sugar Hill is a blaxploitation horror movie released in 1974. The film stars the very beautiful Marki Bey. When gangsters brutally murder her boyfriend, a woman decides to get revenge. She visits a voodoo queen to seek the aid of the Lord of the Dead, who raises a zombie army to do her bidding.

P.S. This blog was honored with the
Superior Scribbler Award by Steve at the cool blog The Last Picture Show. I appreciate it very much. Extra Note: I added this in on Wednesday, October 28th. I also received this award from the very sexy blog Nylon Dreams. Thanks so much.

It is my duty to now bestow this award on five other blogs. This is always hard to do because there are so many blogs worthy of this award. Here are the five I have picked:

Absolutely killer poster. Big fan of these types of films.

Wolf Boy said...

I've never ever been able to see this one. I always thought it looked really cool though.

Keith said...

Hey Richard. Thanks. I love these kind of movies myself.

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. It's a hard movie to see. Glad I could share this post with you.

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

I've never seen this one myself. I do like those posters. The clip was nice to see. It's an interesting premise for a movie.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Yay! Thanks for the award, Keith! That is so awesome.

I need to see this movie asap, if it's available somewhere...netflix? Hmmm...

It sounds intriguing.

Mrs. M. said...

i have never seen that one but i will have to check it out. I love flicks that have elements of voodoo, but there are far too few nowadays.
Also idk if you have ever seen it, but Tales from the Crypt's "Ritual" is a great film if you aren't expecting too much. There's voodoo and jungle and babes and Jennifer Grey. You can never go wrong with TFTC.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. Thanks. Glad you enjoyed this post even though you hadn't seen this movie before.

Keith said...

Hey Jennifer. You are very welcome. I enjoy your blog a lot so it was nice to pass on this award to you. This movie is hard to find.

Keith said...

Hey Mrs. M. Thanks for commenting. I love movies like this. I've always been fascinated by voodoo. There aren't enough movies that deal with it. I do think I saw that one from TFTC. You definitely can't go wrong with that.

Mondo said...

Hey keith thanks for the award you're a star. Along similar lines to this post I checked out Halloween episode of Starsky and Hutch, The Vampire.

Have you seen it?

Max Reddick said...

Hey, thanks for this reminder. I planned to look for this one a while back. Someone from your other site sent me the url for this site that sold old movies. Do you have that url?

Rev. Phantom said...

Thank you, Keith! An award and Sugar Hill? Sweet! Sugar Hill is one of my all time favorite blaxploitation flicks. Not sure why it hasn't got an official DVD release yet--it deserves it.

Scott (gotankgo) said...

Happening post for the Halloween season. Dig this flick with it's genre straddling story and super sexy leading lady.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. You are very welcome. You've got a very cool blog. I saw that show back when I was a kid. Haven't seen it since then. I might have seen that episode, but I don't remember.

Keith said...

Hey Max. You are very welcome. I'm not sure if I've got that url or not. I'll have to see. This is one that seems to be hard to find so it's always great to find a site that has it.

Keith said...

Hey Rev. You are very welcome. Your blog is one of my favorites out there. I knew you liked Sugar Hill. This definitely deserves an official DVD release.

Keith said...

Hey Scott. Thanks. Glad you like this one. I love blaxploitation horror. Marki is one hot babe.

Midtown Girl said...

Whoa - those outfits are sick! I love the fitted jumpsuits - and it reminds me of Jackie Brown - love it!

XOXO

Keith said...

Hey Midtown. Thanks. Yeah, I know what you mean about the clothing.

Daniela said...

Oh my God, I forgot all about Sugar Hill! How can I forget that one!! Thanks for this reminder! :)

Keith said...

Hey Daniela. You are very welcome. Glad I could remind you about this cool flick.

Keith said...

Hey Deana. Thanks. I wish I had these posters. I've got some cool posters, but not one of these yet.

Keith said...

The Haute-Shopper said...

They really don't do movie posters like they used to, do they? Love the storyline of this and Marki looks pretty fierce! Hope you had a fantastic weekend!

Keith said...

Hey Haute. Thanks. They definitely don't do movie posters like this anymore. It is a cool movie. Marki is very hot.

sexylegsandbody said...

Congrats on your award, you surely deserve it.
have a fab week!
Colin.

Keith said...

Thanks Colin. I appreciate that. Enjoy your week.

Pop Champagne said...

hmm interesting. I enjoy old horror movies, theyre not as scary as the new ones that look more realistic, and aren't very creative on how people dies... I don't like the whole gore and torture like "Saw" eeeeek gives me nightmares!

yeah I thought the same thing as you witht he Ashlee simpson being a temp on the show. She did so much promotion for it. Prob because her character isn't very popular. Hah I certainly wouldn't support her acting!

Keith said...

Hey Pop. Thanks for your comment. I love horror movies from the past. Whether they are from the 30's onto the 70's.

Ashlee's acting is a joke. They should never have hired her. That show sounds like it needs a real shot in the arm.

jbfunky said...

WOW! She looks alot like Pam Grier.

Congrats on your award, well deserved!

Keith said...

Hey JB. Thanks. Glad you liked this post. Cheers!
