Summary: When two prominent black anthropologists, Dr. Hess Green (Duane Jones) and Dr. Meda (Bill Gunn), uncover the remains of an ancient African tribe of bloodsuckers, called the Myrthians, they unleash an evil force buried for centuries beneath the earth. Meda, possessed by the spirit of the Myrthian queen (Mabel King), attacks his partner with a dagger diseased from the ancient culture and then kills himself - leaving Hess to return to the U.S. with an unquenchable thirst for blood. After seducing Meda's widow (Marlene Clark), Green soon has her hooked on the red stuff as well.
