Lewis, 1993) Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde (William Crain, 1976) The Carrier 
(Nathan J. White, 1988) Romero's Dead trilogy Meschach Taylor and Chuck 
Berry's cameos in _Explorers_ (Joe Dante, 1985) Aliens (James Cameron, 
1986) Demolition Man (Marco Brambilla, 1993) Daybreak with Omar Epps & 
Moira Kelly Welcome II the Terrordome *batteries not included <<Scott, 
I'm working on a documentary film with a friend of mine about black 
science fiction. You have a handle on obscure films, and you might be 
able to help in some form. Mostly, I'm in search of sci-fi related films 
that are related to black issues or characterization. I'd be grateful if 
you had some books or sites for reference as well. I have a majority of 
typically known blaxploitation and some other stuff that is easily 
attainable, again any help would be appreciated. thanx in advance.>>
