Directed by Steve Carver
Mandingo lit the fuse... Drum is the explosion! Plantation boss and slave owner Hammond Maxwell (Warren Oates, Two-Lane Blacktop) purchases Drum (Ken Norton, Mandingo) and Blaise (Yaphet Kotto, Alien) from bordello hostess Marianna (Isela Vega, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia). Marianna is actually Drum's mother, although her lesbian lover Rachel (Paula Kelly, Soylent Green) actually raised the boy. Thrown into the package to Hammond is Drum's girlfriend Regine (Pam Grier, Foxy Brown), who was purchased to satisfy the carnal urges of Mr. Hammond. However, Augusta Chauvet (Fiona Lewis, The Fury), setting her sites on Hammond, has other plans. Drum is such a perfect specimen that neither men nor women can keep their hands off of him. Drum looks stoic until a climactic slave revolt breaks out, guaranteeing more blood and carnage than Mandingo could ever hope to provide. See the film that"Out-Mandingos Mandingo!" In glorious HD, shot by the legendary cinematographer Lucien Ballard (The Wild Bunch, The Killing).
