Black Horror Movies

BlackHorrorMovies.com is the culmination of my life experiences as a black horror movie fan: seeing hundreds of black people stabbed, chopped up, and eviscerated without so much as a “rest in peace” or even a “sorry, my bad,” and finding scant acknowledgment of the role of black people in horror films (Zombies anyone?). While the marginalization of black actors in other genres translates into undeveloped characters and storylines, in horror, it translates into something more concrete: death. Usually the painful kind. The recent phenomenon of “urban horror,” questionable as the quality may be, means that there must be some people like me who are into both things horror and people black. For my more in-depth thoughs, see my PopMatters.com column. Feel free to contact me with any comments, errors, or omissions (of which there are plenty, I’m sure):
