"Brotherhood of Death" is a 1976 American film directed by Bill Berry. It falls within the exploitation genre and is notable for its portrayal of racial issues, particularly during the Civil Rights Movement era.

The film follows three African American Vietnam War veterans who return to their hometown in the American South, only to find that racism and discrimination are still rampant. They witness a white police officer unjustly shooting a black man and decide to take matters into their own hands. The veterans form a vigilante group called the "Brotherhood of Death" to fight against racial injustice and protect their community.

"Brotherhood of Death" addresses themes of racism, discrimination, and the struggle for equality. It explores the complexities of racial tensions in the United States during the 1970s, drawing parallels between the experiences of black soldiers fighting abroad and the challenges they face upon returning home.

The film received mixed reviews upon its release, with some critics praising its exploration of important social issues and others criticizing its low production values and melodramatic elements. However, it remains a notable example of exploitation cinema from the 1970s and is remembered for its attempt to address important social issues within the context of genre filmmaking.
