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

i would have given this five skulls because i thought it was very informative, and admire the works of a lot of the actors and filmmakers featured in this doc, however i think they missed the mark when talking about certain creature feature monsters and trying to pin something on how they looked, solely based on some minor similarities... basically suggesting there's something that may not actually be there.
