Arts and Crap : Ganja & Hess

The gang is back! This week (or however long it’s been)’s episode is on GANJA & HESS (also known as BLOOD COUPLE and DOUBLE POSSESSION depending on where or when you didn’t see it … ) Bill Gunn’s 1973 take on a Black Vampire film, most recently remade by Spike Lee as DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS. Is it a horror movie? A piece of avant-garde cinema? A bit of Blaxpoitation fun? All of these, or none? Good questions but we focus on the most important one: Is it ART? Or is it CRAP?

Starring Duane Jones (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD), Marlene Clark (THE LANDLORD, SANFORD & SON), and Gunn himself in a pivotal role.
