HORROR NOIRE GUIDE: 13 Essential Black Horror Films

Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror (2019) is an exceptional Shudder original documentary (based on the 2011 book of the same name by Robin R. Means Coleman) that traces the history of Black representation in horror films — and their love for, and experiences in, the genre.

BLACK-HORROR

Directed by Xavier Burgin and written and produced by Ashlee Blackwell (Graveyard Shift Sisters) and Danielle Burrows, the film reflects on the influential Black horror films through the decades, from 1915 to the present, and discusses the trends and shifts in representation over the years. It’s both incredibly insightful and inspiring.

Inspired by a call to action on Twitter by Phil Nobile, Jr., the Editor-in-Chief for Fangoria and one of the Executive Producers of Horror Noire, the Morbidly Beautiful staff watched many of the Black horror films referenced in the documentary and recommended by Shudder (many for the first time).
