2023 is shaping up to be a good year to be a Black horror fan! Deon Taylor’s new horror film is set to hit theaters January 27 of next year. Audiences can expect a thriller of the psychological variety. After confiding their worst fears in each other around a campfire, the boogeyman in this movie takes the form of whatever it’s current victim’s worst fear is! As well, the cast features several Black actors! Perhaps most relevant to hip-hop is rapper T.I., who has been cast as “Lou”. Annie Ilonzeh plays “Bianca”.
Black Brit, Jessica Allain, already has extensive experience with horror films as she most recently was appeared in the 2022 remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre! The list continues with King Bach, Terrence J, and Tyler Abron all being cast members. King Bach appeared in the 2017 black comedy, The Babysitter. Black actors potentially have a rich emotional history to work with when acting in a scary movie due to the unfortunate circumstances Black people around the world face! Black actors are some of the bravest in Hollywood.
