Horror Noire Anthology Film Gets Bone-Chilling Trailer


The horror-based subscription service Shudder released a trailer for the anthology film Horror Noire. The film is a follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2019 documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror.

Now Shudder is expanding the concept, showcasing six new stories, directed, written by, and starring Black creators and performers. Writers for the anthology series include husband-and-wife writing due Tananarive Due (My Soul to Keep, Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror) and Steven Barnes (Lion’s Blood), Ezra Claytan Daniels (BTTM FDRS), Victor LaValle (The Ballad of Black Tom, The Changeling), Shernold Edwards (All Rise, Anne with an E), and Al Letson (Reveals).
