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.

Dumb.... Never in my life have i sit to watch king Kong or any monster movie ever and first think to jump in my mind is oh look representation of a black person blew my mind away had to reply that a few times to make sure I heard what i heard . all i see when I watch king Kong is a giant gollira fighting dinousars and whatever else is in his island and this goes for any other monster movie from 50s or 60s . i was hoping for some good movies to go look into to after watching this but nope bunch of people crying about getting killed of first or last or being a sacrifice. The one guy from Friday the 13th and return of the living day said it best why he going to be mad he got paid and still getting paid for those movies .
