Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror

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.

HORROR NOIRE traces an untold history of Black Americans through their connection to the horror film genre.

Cast: Jordan Peele, Tananarive Due, Tony Todd, Ken Foree

Excellent and thorough documentary about the history of African Americans in horror films. All of the interviews and clips were informative. Thank you Shudder for producing Horror Noire!

I really LOVED this film and I'm proud to see how far we've come in Black Horror and cannot wait to see more of its progression in the near future, but I wished they would have shown the names of all the films that were talked about especially the one with the guy with the bulging eyes I wanna see that one for myself
