And we truly are in a golden age for horror films especially the ones which are directed by the Blacks.
With the success of many horror films like Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” (2017) and “Us” (2019) and Xavier Burgin’s documentary “Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror” (2019) have helped to set a high point in that genre.
