* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: This movie had a pretty damn funky soundtrack that mixed creepy horror motifs with R&B and funk.
* CompleteMonster: Although briefly seen, the first film's incarnation of {{Dracula}} manages to be even worse than most other depictions. Not only is he a blood sucking monster who's turned dozen of girls into vampires (as we see when he unveils his harem and sics them on Blacula's wife), he's also involved in the [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil slave trade]]. When the African prince and his wife come seeking his help, he turns the prince into a vampire, renames him "Blacula," imprisons him in a coffin to starve for all eternity (and because he was now an immortal vampire, his suffering would never stop), and starves his wife to death. Unlike Blacula himself, who is a tragic character and spends most of the second film searching for a cure for his vampirism, Dracula relishes in being a vampire, showing no remorse for anything he does.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Make no mistake, ''Scream Blacula Scream'' is a horror film, like the one before it, but the scene where two guys try to mug an unimpressed Blacula is ''really'' funny.
** There's also Willis, the first victim Blacula turns, whose main problem after becoming undead is that he can't admire his fine self in the mirror any more. [[PrecisionFStrike SHEEE-it, man!]]
* OlderThanTheyThink: Kids these days are more likely to be familiar with the Blacula-inspired character in ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' than with this movie.
* ValuesDissonance: Many of the comments regarding the two CampGay characters in the beginning are definitely a product of a less enlightened era. The fact that the cops dismiss their deaths because they are gay is downright offensive to modern viewers.
** ValuesResonance: This is just another part of the movie's stance on prejudice being wrong, though.
