A new Shudder Original documentary traces the history of black horror.
Delving into a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and finally embraced them, Horror Noire traces a secret history of Black Americans in Hollywood through their connection to the horror genre.
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 Burgin, Horror 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).
Horror Noire will be available to stream beginning February 7th, 2019 only on Shudder, AMC Network’s horror, thriller and suspense streaming channel.
