Horror Noire is the brainchild of Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman, the author responsible for the smash hit book of the same name. It is directed by Xavier Burgin. Topics covered include the controversial depiction of black people in horror and the rise of some of the genre’s most influential stars.

There will also be in-depth discussion that explores the role black filmmakers and artists have played in the development of an approach to film that leaves so much room for exploration and creativity even today. Horror Noire will be available exclusively via Shudder’s streaming service starting February 7th.
