Dying in a horror movie is a rite of passage for black actors. Can you name at least one film in which these esteemed (and not so esteemed) actors, actresses, athletes, and musicians have met their maker? If you can, perhaps consider getting some fresh air for a change....
A Blair Witch Project spoof in the year 2006? Congratulations, you're seven years out of touch! The whole black and/or hip-hop angle was done years ago in The Black Witch Project and Da Hip-Hop Witch (although sadly, Bigfoot might be the best of the bunch) , so what's supposed...
Snoop Dogg in Bones horror movie poster
No, it's not gay porn, but thanks for asking. Bones is a horror film starring the one and only Snoop Dogg. True, any film starring Snoop Dogg could legitimately be deemed a horror film, but this one actually has, like, ghosts and stuff. Snoop is Jimmy Bones, a '70s-era...
Carnivorous horror movie DMX
Alan is a poor little white boy living in the middle of nowhere with an abusive dad. Luckily, he doesn't let his circumstances curtail his sense of entitlement, as he decides to waltz into the local black voodoo guy's house (picture Ken Foree with Little Richard's hair piece) and...
Cutthroat Alley horror movie poster
An above-average direct-to-video urban slasher, Cutthroat Alley is basically Scream in the 'Hood. It borrows liberally from the Wes Craven flick, but what it lacks in originality it makes up for in direction, writing and production value (everything's relative here, folks). The story is a cohesive whodunit with no...
Dead Heist horror movie
Looking at the DVD cover, I was prepared to mock this film mercilessly, but it turns out that Dead Heist is the opposite of those direct-to-video dregs that spend three-quarters of their budget on snazzy cover art in order to suck you in and waste two hours of your...
Deep Blue Sea horror movie poster
I don't know if there's anyone who would describe anything Renny Harlin's ever done as "clever" -- except maybe "Clever how he tanked Geena Davis's career" -- but darnit if Deep Blue Sea doesn't display a glimmer of cleverness amidst its arm-gnawing mayhem. There's a nudge-and-wink awareness of the...
Master P's Don't Be Scared horror movie
Master P is a business man. I realize that. He's never been accused of artistic integrity. But Don't Be Scared (phonetically, Don't Be Scurred) may be an all-time low. I hope that he saw it as strictly a money-making venture to capitalize on the whole slasher craze, because if...
Dracula 3000 movie poster
Coolio. Tiny Lister. Casper Van Dien. Erika Eleniak. I haven't seen this many B-grade actors since Circus of the Stars. And the sad thing is, this movie is beneath even them. In one of the biggest casting stretches since Tara Reid played an anthropologist in Alone in the Dark,...
Dream Home horror movie
I give Dream Home credit for being a mostly African-American horror movie without revolving around a stereotypically "urban" storyline involving gangstas, or even a stereotypically "rural" storyline involving voodoo. I also give it credit for being only 70 minutes long. Beyond that, it's garbage. I suppose the cover art...
