‘Horror Noire’ documentary to premiere on Shudder February 7th

A new Shudder Original documentary traces the history of black horror.

Adapting executive producer Robin Means Coleman’s seminal book, Horror Noire will present the living and the dead, using new interviews from scholars and creators; the voices who survived the genre’s past trends, to those shaping its future.

Executive Produced by Coleman, Tananarive Due (My Soul to Keep), and Fangoria‘s Phil Nobile Jr., written and produced by Ashlee Blackwell and Danielle Burrows, and Directed by Xavier BurginHorror Noire features interviews with Due and Coleman along with Ernest Dickerson (Bones), Rusty Cundieff (Tales from the Hood), Jordan Peele (Us), Tina Mabry (Mississippi Damned), Tony Todd (Candyman), Paula Jai Parker (Tales from the Hood),

Horror Noire had its World Premiere on February 1st at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood with a guest panel that included Keith David (The Thing), Rachel True (The Craft), and Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead).
