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

You never realize the lack of representation in something until you are forced to remove your rose colored glasses and view it in another perspective. Today, I have learned that some of my absolute favorite subgenres of horror are the creations of brilliant minds within the Black community. This was a powerful and educational documentary.
