Horror Noire

Horror Noire

Australian Premiere

Based on Robin R. Means Coleman’s landmark book Horror Noire: Blacks in American Horror Films from the 1890s to the Present, this new documentary traces the under-represented history of African American artists in Hollywood through their connection to the horror genre. Horror Noire provides a critical look at a century of films that by turns caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and eventually embraced Black culture — from the silent era through to early genre cinema, blaxploitation, urban horror, and the horror renaissance signalled in the late 2010s by films like Get Out.
