Horror Noire

Dir. Xavier Burgin
2019, 85min

 

This new film delves into a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and finally embraced black Americans in Hollywood, tracing a secret history through their connection to the horror genre. Adapting executive producer Dr. Robin Means Coleman’s seminal book of the same title, Horror Noire presents the living and the dead, using new and archival interviews from scholars and creators, the voices who survived the genre’s past trends, and those shaping its future.

A Shudder Original documentary.

 
Tales from the Hood

Dir. Rusty Cundieff
With Clarence Williams III, Corbin Bernsen, Joe Torry
1995, 98min, DCP

 

A creepy mortician attempts to scare a teenage drug dealer and his friends straight by telling them four horrifying stories.
