ABAR, THE BLACK SUPERMAN (in your face) (1977 U.S.) D: FRANK PACKARD W: JAMES SMALLEY P: J.P. JOSHUA
A middle-class black doctor and his family move into a white suburban neighbourhood. The racist locals harass and threaten them, dump garbage all over the lawn and even kill their cat. A black militant biker gang help the doctor, even though they don`t see eye-to-eye on politics. This all leads up to the gang leader Abar drinking the doctor`s experimental serum that turns him into an indestructible, psychic superhero. The doctor wants revenge for the death of his son at the hands of bigots, and this very moralistic and odd movie is more of a power-struggle drama than fantasy adventure. It`s well-worth a look as long as you don`t expect big thrills or outrageousness.
