“It’s Not About Them. It’s About US.”
Probably my biggest criticism of “Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror” is one I don’t like in other movies: the length.
This fantastic documentary needed to be longer!!
Still, at only 83 minutes, it’s incredibly paced, well shot and includes so many WONDERFUL movies and performances that the mainstream audience may never have heard of or seen without a mention here. To that/them I say: BRAVO. One in particular was Jada Pinkett Smith.
Just to give an example, way back in the day, I first saw her in Demon Knight on the big screen and LOOOVED her. Thought that very little known actress would go far after this horror movie. And she did. And they mentioned this movie/role in a nice little segment. If the rest of the doc didn’t impress me (and it did,) this definitely was high on my list.
I’ve seen at least one, maybe a couple or more documentaries on Queer representation in cinema. It’s nice to hear from another, very predominate group in horror films and their evolution. While I did see it with my own eyes, it’s really nice to hear many different and important points of views. From incredibly well spoken experts in this field to actors/directors that I definitely admire.
Again, I just wish there was more. Here’s hoping to probably the first ever documentary sequel for more content!*
Final thoughts: *I did NOT research that. So maybe there’s already a documentary sequel. But, I’d still love to see one to this and learn even more and hear more intimate stories!
Give us MORE!
I loved every minute of this! I even added a few of these movies to my watch list most I have seen throughout the years including the ones from the 70s. My only complaint is it WAS NOT LONG ENOUGH!
