The Warner Archive Collection

The devastatingly gorgeous Tamara Dobson is a highlight of the blaxploitation subgenre, although the emphasis in her starring debut shifts away from innercity vice to bigger-than-life comic book fantasy.

Co-stars are a gallery of favorites: Bernie Casey, Antonio Fargas, Bill McKinney, Esther Rolle and Shelley Winters enjoying herself mightily as the evil druglord, ‘Mommy.’ On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
