Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror
Directed by Xavier Burgin
Delving into a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and finally embraced them, Horror Noire traces the untold history of Black Americans in Hollywood through their connection to the horror genre. Adapting Robin Means Coleman’s seminal book, HORROR NOIRE will present the living and the dead, using new and archival interviews from scholars and creators; the voices who survived the genre’s past trends, to those shaping its future. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.

Thought provoking, insightful and compelling doc. What a pleasure and a treasure to have this.
The whole reason I wanted to get Shudder was to see this documentary and it does not disappoint. Fantastic watch and filled with so, so much background and depth. WATCH IT.
One of the best docs Ive seen on shutter.
